The government says that at least 15 people have been killed in clashes, though civil society groups put the figure much higher. Fresh clashes erupted on Wednesday on the campus of the University of Kinshasa and were reported in three other areas of the teeming riverside capital.

In the central neighborhood of Matete, a witness reported security forces firing live rounds at protesters, who had erected barricades of burning tires in the streets and responded by hurling rocks.

The opposition called the protests on Monday in a bid to take control of parliament and stop pro-government legislators approving a reform of the electoral code that would require a census before the 2016 presidential vote. The opposition says that would take years to organize such a national count.

Government spokesman Lambert Mende said at least 11 people were killed in Tuesday’s violence, and four people on Monday.
