Congo capital on alert day after gunbattles

Congolese security forces have increased patrols across the southern areas of BrazzavilleFollowing heavy gun battles that began before dawn on Monday and raged through the morning in the city’s southern districts, sporadic gunfire continued until sunset but petered out overnight. There was no immediate toll from the fighting, which came on the heels of a disputed presidential election and was blamed by the government on a rebel group known as “The Ninjas”. The southern districts of Makelekele and Mayana remained eerily quiet and few residents appeared to have returned home after fleeing the fighting in droves the day before.
