What has triggered new fighting in DR Congo? | Conflict


From: Inside Story

The Democratic Republic of the Congo and Rwanda have accused one another of firing rockets throughout their shared border.

Greater than 25 years after the First Congo Conflict, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Rwanda are engaged in dispute.

The Central African neighbours have accused one another of firing rockets throughout their shared border, together with a strike that killed two Congolese kids.

This appears to have been triggered by preventing between the M23 insurgent group and state forces within the nation’s east.

Each Congo and the United Nations have accused Rwanda of supporting the M23 motion.

So, might this escalate right into a full-blown conflict between the 2 neighbours?
