Congo: Fighting With M23 Rebels Renews

The Congolese army said that it made major advances against M23 rebel forces during the second day of fierce fighting on Oct. 26 and called for neighboring Rwanda to help disarm the militants, Reuters reported. The clashes — the first in more than two months — came after peace talks in Uganda broke down this week. An army spokesman said that M23 has been pushed out of Kibumba, a town some 20 kilometers (13 miles) north of Goma. U.N. investigators have accused Rwanda of supporting M23. With U.N. forces present to help contain the rebels, Kinshasa has no reason to moderate its negotiating position.
