Top DRC Court Excludes Jean-Pierre Bemba from Election

The top court in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has excluded former vice president and opposition leader Jean-Pierre Bemba from standing for election because of a witness tampering conviction at the International Criminal Court. In a judgment broadcast on national television, the court ruled that the election commission had rightly invalidated Bemba's candidacy last month.
