Death toll in Congo attacks rises to 100: government
Around 100 people were killed on Monday in Democratic Republic of Congo when security forces clashed with supporters of a self-proclaimed 'prophet' who tried to seize control of the airport, a military barracks and state television, the government said. Paul Joseph Mukungubila, who calls himself 'the prophet of the Eternal' was on the run from authorities, government spokesman Lambert Mende said on Tuesday. Mukungubila, who ran unsuccessfully for president in 2006, said the attacks were in response to government harassment of his supporters. Armed youths attacked the airport, a military barracks and the state television headquarters in Kinshasa on Monday before being repulsed by troops.
