DRCONGO-UNREST

The bodies of two alleged M23 fighters lay on the ground surrounded by Congolese army soldiers in the village of Rusayo during a press visit, some 13km from Goma in the east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo on July 16, 2013. According to the army, one of the men was Ugandan and the other Rwandan, but they could not produce the identity cards that they claimed to have seen proving this. The army in the Democratic Republic of Congo on Tuesday pursued an offensive against rebels of the M23 movement to protect the North Kivu provincial capital of Goma, military sources said. Colonel Mamadou Mbala, head of commando forces in the regular army (FARDC), told AFP by telephone that his troops were ordered to place Goma 'out of danger'. The city is key to a region rich in minerals including gold and coltan, a key component in cell phones and other electronic equipment.
