Horrible Things Happening in Congo… Again

Posted in africa, congo by indiegoddess on November 7, 2008

UN peacekeepers said gunfire erupted on Friday just north of the city of Goma, where rebel forces halted their offensive last week.

Thousands of refugees in the nearby town of Kibati are said to have fled towards Goma when the mortar and small arms fire broke out.

Meanwhile, the UN said it was investigating reports that rebels led by Gen Nkunda had killed civilians in their homes in the eastern town of Kiwanja on Thursday.

At least 12 bodies were found in the town, which was retaken by rebels loyal to him earlier this week.

“They knocked on the doors, when the people opened, they killed them with their guns,” said Simo Bramporiki, whose wife and child were killed during the night.
