KINSHASA - Seven United Nations peacekeepers in Congo were wounded when gunmen opened fire at a protest in the East of the country on Monday, drawing condemnation from the UN Security Council.

There were no details on the condition of the peacekeepers, who the UN Security Council said were from Pakistan.

Several more peacekeepers in the contingent were injured by stone throwers when a base in South Kivu province was surrounded by crowd of 1,000 people, the United Nations said.

"The seven wounded peacekeepers have been taken to Goma, North Kivu, for medical treatment," UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's spokesman, Martin Nesirky, said in a statement.
