Simmering political tensions in the Democratic Republic of Congo were on display Tuesday as the countryís largest opposition party buried six people who were killed when the party's headquarters was attacked amid violent protests in September.

At the funeral service, hundreds of mourners made no secret of who they hold responsible for their loss. They chanted that President Joseph Kabila is killing people in Congo and must resign immediately.

The day before, the six young menís bodies had been returned to the place where they died, the headquarters of their political party, the UDPS, the countryís largest opposition party. Its compound in Kinshasa was set on fire in the early hours of September 20.

The service took place in front of the burnt out building.

According to the United Nations, more than 50 people were killed during the unrest that erupted during an opposition march held on September 19.

Martin Fayulu, a prominent politician with the Rassemblement, an opposition coalition in which the UDPS plays a leading role, told VOA the six opposition members were killed by Mr. Kabilaís mob of soldiers as a reprisal for the demonstration. The attack demonstrates Kabilaís barbarism, Fayulu said, a barbarism for everyone to see.

Fayulu said the best way to honor these six menís memories is to secure democracy. He said the opposition must accomplish the work these activists started and Kabila must step down December 19 when his term ends.
