Armed men attacked the country's airport, state TV headquarters and army headquarters in Kinshasa.
At least 34 assailants were killed, according to an Interior Ministry statement.

In response, it said that security had been beefed up in the capital.
African Union Commission Chairwoman Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma condemned the attacks, stressing the AU's commitment to support Congolese efforts to consolidate peace, security and stability.
