    An official from the electoral commission in the Democratic Republic of Congo says Sunday's elections might be delayed due to technical difficulties.

    Earlier, police fired tear gas at a crowd of rock-throwing supporters of opposition presidential candidate Martin Fayulu in the capital, Kinshasa.

    The violence came after a ban by the city's governor on all political gatherings.
