KINSHASA, Democratic Republic of Congo, Dec. 23 (UPI) -- Military forces in the Democratic Republic of Congo have blocked the entrance to a stadium where an opposition leader plans to inaugurate himself as president.
Police reportedly used flash-bang grenades to disperse crowds attempting to enter the Martyrs Stadium in Kinshasa Friday.
However, a spokesman for Tshisekedi told the BBC he still intended to hold the inauguration.
Kabila was sworn in for a second term Tuesday after being declared the official winner with 49 percent of the vote.
The U.S.-based Human Rights Watch reported at least 24 people have been killed since the disputed poll.
