Rwanda has criticized the Congo (DRC) for halting military operations against Hutu rebels who fled there after the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Rwanda’s foreign minister told the BBC the rebels were attempting to gather strength in eastern DR Congo to launch attacks on his country. Earlier this week, DR Congo said it stopped the seven-month offensive to avoid further bloodshed. The UN says more than 160,000 people have been displaced by fighting. (BBC)
