The United Nations human rights chief on Thursday warned Congolese authorities to dial back their “extremely confrontational position” with opposition forces, or risk facing a large-scale political crisis. Zeid Ra’aad Al Hussein issued his statement after clashes between opposition protesters and security forces earlier this week left several buildings destroyed and at least 50 people dead.
