Spokesman Lambert Mende told The Associated Press on Tuesday afternoon that the situation was in control after reports of heavy gunfire near the Tshatshi military camp in Kinshasa. Mende did not immediately have a toll for anyone killed or wounded in the attack. The military camp is located close to the residence of President Joseph Kabila and the sound of gunfire for about 20 minutes in the area provoked widespread panic. Tensions have been particularly high in Congo’s capital since December when assailants attacked not only the Tshatshi camp but also the airport and the headquarters of national television.

Struve overcame the odds and was cleared by doctors in April to fight again. The top fifteen-ranked heavyweight was offered a fight against Matt Mitrione at UFC 175 and was medically cleared by the Nevada Athletic Commission. They officially made weight on Independence Day for the July 5 event. While warming up prior to the fight, Struve suffered a panic attack and became light headed. His blood pressure dropped and his return bout was nixed from the card just before the broadcast went live on pay-per-view. The good news is that Struve is healthy.

Panic surged through Horacio Elizondo late in the 2006 World Cup final as players from both teams encircled him and awaited his decision. An Italian defender lay on the ground writhing in pain, clutching his chest and pointing at French star Zinedine Zidane, but Elizondo had been watching the ball and had no idea what happened. The Argentinian referee asked his assistant closest to the play if he’d seen the incident. No luck. Elizondo asked his assistant on the far side of the pitch. Again nothing. Then, just as Elizondo feared he was about to make a mess of the most high-profile match of his career as a referee, the voice of a fourth official typically in charge of administrative duties crackled in his headset.
