    Protesters angry at a UN disarmament effort in the volatile east of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) have hurled rocks at a peacekeeper convoy there. Police fired tear gas at the protesters in the provincial capital city of Goma in response to the clash, while Congolese army leaders tried to talk to protesters to end the demonstration on Thursday.
