DRC elections: 'people aren't just angry - they're outraged'

It's been announced that three areas in the Democratic Republic of Congo - totaling one million people - won't be able to vote in the presidential election until March because of Ebola outbreaks and insecurity.

But the OFFICIAL result of the poll will still be reported in mid-January.
