RUTSHURU, Congo (Reuters) - A U.N. relief convoy which entered a rebel-captured zone of east Congo on Monday for the first time since heavy fighting last week found deserted refugee camps emptied of their tens of thousands of occupants.
"All the camps are empty. They have all left. All the shelters have been destroyed ... nothing remains," Francis Nakwafio Kasai, a field officer with the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), told Reuters.
The U.N. convoy, carrying aid workers and medical supplies and escorted by U.N. troops, crossed the conflict front line in Democratic Republic of Congo's eastern North Kivu province to reach the rebel-held town of Rutshuru.
Nkunda began a low-level insurgency in 2004, claiming Congo's transition to democracy had excluded the Tutsi ethnic group. Despite agreeing in January to a UN-brokered cease-fire, he resumed fighting in August. Nkunda wants direct talks with the government. He has especially complained about a $9 billion agreement in which China gets access to Congo's valuable minerals in return** for building a highway and railroad. Nkunda's rebellion has threatened to re-ignite the back-to-back wars that afflicted Congo from 1996 to 2002, drawing in a half dozen African nations. President Joseph Kabila of Congo, elected in 2006 in Congo's first election in 40 years, has struggled to contain the violence in the east.
**άρα δεν αποτελεί έκπληξη η αρνητική αντίδραση της Μ Βρεττανίας στα Γαλικά σχέδια για επέμβαση , η Κίνα εξ' άλλου αποτελεί τον υπ αρ.1 κίνδυνο, λόγω της μεγάλης διεισδυσης της στην Αφρική
