Published: 12.12.13, 00:31 / Israel News

Members of a Rwandan Hutu militia in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo have been surrending in large numbers to UN peacekeepers trying to neutralize armed groups in the region, a senior UN official said on Wednesday.

 

Congolese troops and the UN peacekeeping mission – which includes a unique Intervention Brigade mandated to eliminate armed groups in eastern Congo – have turned their attention to combating the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) after defeating the Tutsi-led M23 rebel group last month.
