RFI says Congo revokes journalist's accreditation

KINSHASA, Congo — Radio France International says Congo's government has revoked the accreditation of one of its journalists.

A statement on Wednesday says Florence Morice was merely doing her job in covering the country's presidential election, and it asks that Congo reverse its decision.

The statement also says RFI's transmissions have been blocked in most of the country since Tuesday.

The internet has been cut across the vast Central African country this week in an apparent effort by the government to prevent social media speculation about the results of Sunday's vote.

The opposition in Congo has alleged multiple problems in the vote for a successor to departing President Joseph Kabila.

African Union observers note the "peaceful" election but "strongly wish" that the results conform to the people's vote. Early results are expected Sunday.
