South Kivu Now Set to Be "Saved"

L'Antenne Libre ASFCO reports that the humanitarian situation in South Kivu has significantly deteriorated in the last few days since authorities announced they would begin pursuing the FDLR in that province. The territories of Mwenga, Shabunda, Kalehe, Kabare and Walungu have been particularly hard hit. The Congolese NGO says that the government's apparent advances may prove illusory, as the FDLR simply melt into the forest when challenged, only to retake the towns and villages once the army departs--and then, to engage in reprisal killings.
