Three Americans among suspects arrested for COUP attempt in DR Congo (video)


Three Americans have been named among suspects responsible for Sunday’s coup attempt in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Sylvain Ekenge, DRC army spokesperson, said the attempt involved ‘foreigners and Congolese’.

‘These foreigners and Congolese have been put out of action, including their leader,’ Ekenge said.

Ekenge added that several suspects were detained and the situation is now under control. 

Lucy Tamyln, US ambassador to the DRC, said she was shocked and very concerned to receive reports of American citizens being involved.

Pictures of two men with their hands clasped were published in local media, alongside pictures of a passport that indicated one was a 36-year-old US citizen born in Maryland.

‘Please be assured that we will cooperate with the DRC authorities to the fullest extent as they investigate these criminal acts and hold accountable any U.S. citizen involved in criminal acts,’ Tamlyn tweeted.
