UN extends DRC peacekeeping mission

28 June 2012, 11:32

New York – The UN Security Council has renewed a peace keeping mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo for one year, demanding an end to outside support for a mutiny that the UN experts claim is aided by neighbouring Rwanda.

The resolution, adopted unanimously on Wednesday, does not name Rwanda. It condemns "all outside support to all armed groups and demands that all forms of support to them cease immediately".

A soon-to-be released report accuses Rwanda of violating sanctions and an arms embargo by supporting to the M23 rebel group linked to General Bosco Ntaganda, who is wanted for war crimes by the International Criminal Court.

An unpublished annex to an interim report by the UN Group of Experts, provided to the Associated Press, found evidence Rwanda is "providing material and financial support to armed groups ... including the recently established M23".
