In DR Congo, a stage built for the Pope’s visit collapses: ‘It’s a disgrace’

Pope Francis is expected in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, from January 31 to February 3. But a platform stage where he was supposed to speak collapsed in the Martyrs Stadium on January 30. Repairs were launched the same day, but some Congolese consider this episode a “shame” for their country.
