Mass Jail-Break Occurs In DR Congo

Fifty five prisoners are still at large after a mass jail break from a maximum security prison in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The country's justice minister says 100 other prisoners have been re-arrested. Some are believed to have been shot dead in the security operation.

The Bundu dia Kongo group is behind the jail break, the Reuters news agency reports.

Its leader, Ne Muanda Nsemi, was among those freed.
