Police have surrounded hundreds of Congolese protesters at the U.S. consulate in downtown Toronto.

More than 30 police cars are on the scene and University Avenue, north of Queen Street, is closed in both directions.

Sergeant Craig Somers of the Toronto police said the demonstration "started off very peacefully," with a planned march to the U.S. consulate. He said two members of the march "got a bit out of control" and were arrested.

Protestors are carrying signs saying "Free Congo" and "Respect the will of Congolese people."
