Heavy gunfire broke out at the international airport in the capital of Democratic Republic of Congo on Monday, a customs official told Reuters, minutes after witnesses reported gunmen attacking the headquarters of its state radio and television.

"Shooting has started here," the official told Reuters. "They are shooting everywhere. We are all hiding."
