Kinshasa appears to return to normal after a week of post-electoral tensions during which a volunteer of the Congolese Red Cross was attacked and killed while assisting people who had been wounded during protests.

ICRC head of delegation Franz Rauchenstein condems this attack and describes a situation that, while calmer, remains tense in Kinshasa and other Congolese cities.
