What was hoped to be a peaceful transition of power in the Democratic Republic of Congo has been anything but. More than two dozen people have been reported killed in protests in the central African country as demonstrators demand President Joseph Kabila step down.

Kabila's second and final term ended Monday, but he is digging in his heels and refusing to leave.

Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti speaks with Reuters correspondent Aaron Ross (@aaronross6), who's in Kinshasa, for the latest details.
