Government and rebel troops clash in Democratic Republic of Congo

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, fighting continues between government troops and the rebels loyal to the renegade general, Laurent Nkunda. Tens of thousands of people are fleeing. Some are accusing the U.N. and its troops on the ground of not doing enough. The Congolese government accuses Rwanda of backing the rebels -- something the rebels deny.
