Armed men attacked DR Congo military police at an ammunition compound in the country's second city Lubumbashi for several hours Tuesday, security officials and witnesses said.
Gunfights broke out at 2:00 am (0000 GMT) and stopped around 5:00 am (0300 GMT), witnesses said in the southeastern mining capital's central districts.
"According to the information we have, armed men attacked the military police," the interior minister of Katanga province, Juvenal Kitungwa, told AFP.
Military police responded using heavy weapons, he added.
