KINSHASA, Dec 31 (Reuters) - Around 100 people were killed on Monday in Democratic Republic of Congo when security forces clashed with supporters of a self-proclaimed 'prophet' who tried to seize control of the airport, a military barracks and state television, the government said.

"There are around 100 dead," said government spokesman Lambert Mende, adding that pastor Paul Joseph Mukungubila was on the run from authorities. (Reporting by Bienvenu Bakumanya; Writing by Daniel Flynn; Editing by John Stonestreet)
