Over 4000 inmates escape in DRC prison break

Rebels from an outlawed political-religious group staged a daring attack Kinshasa's central prison, breaking out their leader and other prisoners, with at least eight people killed and scores still missing. 

The AFP news agency says that the pre-dawn attack was carried out by a secessionist rebel group which rejects the authority of President Joseph Kabila's government and wants to set up a parallel state in the west of the country. There are more than 8 000 prisoners locked up in Makala, which was built to house just 1 500 detainees when the country was under Belgian rule and more than 4,000 prisoners were still missing yesterday evening, prompting police to issue a statement that "several dangerous criminals and the authors of horrible crimes" as well as the sect leader were hiding in different parts of the city, urging locals to hand them over.
