UN, NGO and General News Round-Up

    The top UN envoy to the Congo (DRC) has stressed that diplomacy - and not military action - is the only solution to the fighting that has engulfed the volatile far east of the country, as the UN humanitarian wing voiced concern over the impact of the latest violence on civilians. Fighting resumed in North Kivu province on Oct. 24 evening between Government forces (FARDC) and the militia known as the National Congress for the Defence of the People (CNDP), led by former general Laurent Nkunda. MONUC is intervening to thwart the CNDP's attempt to attack the province's capital Goma and other population centers.
