Meet Australia's fellow security council aristocrats: The racist sexist neo-cannibal monsters of Rwanda

BBC News - Rwanda 'wanted new DR Congo rebel front'

Rwanda 'wanted new DR Congo rebel front'

By  Ex-rebel Bestfriend Ndozi 
Rwandan support for rebels in neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo may be more widespread than previously believed, the BBC has found.

Kigali has already rejected UN accusations that it is backing the M23 rebel group which recently captured the strategic eastern city of Goma.

Two ex-rebel fighters told the BBC they were offered money from Rwanda to set up a new front further south.

More than 500,000 people have fled seven months of fighting in the east.

Rwanda has previously backed armed groups in eastern DR Congo as a way of fighting Hutu militias who fled there after Rwanda's 1994 genocide, in which some 800,000 people died.

The M23, who like Rwanda's leaders are mostly ethnic Tutsis, has also denied it is funded by Rwanda.
