Add comment on:Sanctions to target the real aggressors in Congo?
KPFA Evening News/Ann Garrison, 09.07.2012
Earlier this week the UN Group of Experts on the Democratic Republic of the Congo officially released its report on the conflict renewed by the M23 militia in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo in April this year. The report includes documentation that top officials in the Rwandan and Ugandan regimes were involved in arming, supporting, and even providing soldiers to the M23. It implicates Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni's brother and identifies Rwandan Defense Minister James Kabarebe as the commander of the M23 militia in Congo. KPFA's Ann Garrison spoke to Loyola University Professor of International Relations Brian Endless on calls for the use of targeted sanctions, imposed by the UN Security Council to try and end or at least reduce the bloodshed and the numbers of Congolese people struggling to make their way to refugee camps, or fleeing one refugee camp in search of another.
