Congo election loser vows court challenge, violence feared


KINSHASA (Reuters) - The runner-up in Democratic Republic of Congo's presidential election pledged on Friday to launch a formal fraud complaint in a dispute many fear could reawaken violence in a nation where millions have died in civil wars since the 1990s.
