KINSHASA � Gunfire rang out near a small jail in Democratic Republic of Congo's capital Kinshasa on Thursday afternoon and a heavy army presence was deployed at the site, witnesses said on Thursday.

The army and police surrounded the jail in the Matonge neighborhood of Kinshasa. The cause of the gunfire was not clear.

Thousands of inmates have escaped from jails this year in Congo, including about 4,000 from the capital Kinshasa's main high-security prison last month.
