Deadly Clashes Between Militia, M23 Rebels Erupt In DR Congo

After the rebels made it official what would happen in the event of an attack, the security situation in the DRC is in a precarious state. By displaying their power, the rebels successfully repelled an attempt to drive them out by force. The rebels demonstrated their skill in a fierce gunfight that lasted for several hours this morning and resulted in a fatal crash.After a protracted period of silence during which both the military and the rebels kept a low profile, more information about the crash has not been made public, but it is believed to mark the start of a new phase of the war.Kenya has sent another military force to the conflict-torn Congo at this time. The Congo peace negotiations, in which unsettling parties are present, are presently being held in Kenya. While launching the conference, the president reaffirmed Kenya's commitment to bringing peace to the Congo and the surrounding area. This has led to an increase in military personnel who are currently traveling by road through Kampala to the Congo.
