The US Embassy in the Democratic Republic of Congo says the US envoy for the Great Lakes Region, Tom Perriello, has been harassed at an airport in the country.

The Embassy has not revealed the circumstances surrounding the alleged harassment and where exactly it happened.

Monday morning (September 19, 2016), Mr. Perriello had tweeted that the Congolese people needed clarity on the fate of Presidential Elections scheduled for November.

There have been protests in the Congolese Capital, Kinshasa, against President Joseph Kabila's alleged plan to postpone the election and extend his term in office.
