REBELS CLOSE TO CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC


The UN says it fears rebels from the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in DR Congo are advancing towards the Central African Republic (CAR). The UN refugee agency says villages are being set alight, women raped and children abducted.

kony-1LRA rebels massacred close to 500 villagers in northern DR Congo in the past week, near the border with Uganda. It follows an offensive against the rebels launched in December by Ugandan, Southern Sudanese and Congolese forces.

The CAR is reinforcing its border. Meanwhile, there are reports of LRA attacks on villages in southern Sudan.
