Just In : The Period Of Mourning Is Set To End Tommorow In DRC Congo Over The M23 Rebels Fightings

The Democratic Republic of the Congo is in mourning for three days following the massacre of civilians by the country's rebel groups. The period of mourning is set to end tomorrow. During the mourning period no amicable solution has been reached and fighting has allegedly been reported in and around Kivu.

The period of mourning will come to an end with a fundraiser to benefit the families of the victims who died. Civilians who are not affiliated with the rebel groups or the military continue to suffer as a result of the fighting.

Fighting has reportedly increased in areas that were previously under military control but have since been vacated. As a result of the peace talks currently taking place in Nairobi, the rebels are rapidly gaining control.

This is occurring at a time when the United Nations Military wing MONUSCO is lobbying for an investigation into the killing of civilians despite the fact that the M23 rebels have denied responsibility.
