Ban Ki-moon Pushing for EU Force

Belgium's foreign minister Karel De Gucht told Belgium's VRT television that UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is in favor of sending an interim European force to Democratic Republic of Congo until peacekeeping reinforcements arrive. "The United Nations hopes that an European military force could come and fill in the gap" until the UN ramps up its forces, De Gucht said.

No official word from the UN, as far as I can tell.
