Thirty people were sentenced to death in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) after a one-day trial for their role in anti-police violence marking the end of Ramadan in the capital.
A policeman was killed in Kinshasa on Thursday as rival Muslim groups fought over the right to mark the end of Ramadan at a major sports stadium.
Lawyer Chief Tshipamba said 30 people,were sentenced to death in a trial that started on Friday, a day after the violence took place.
A recording of the proceedings confirmed the verdict.
The DRC has not carried out death penalties since a moratorium was introduced in 2003. Since then, death sentences have been commuted to life imprisonment.
