D.R. of Congo: heavy gunfire

What is happening in the Democratic Republic of Congo? Read Congo Girl's update: “Since daybreak, the gun and mortar fire has only worsened in intensity. There is now one column of smoke rising from something or other when I look out the office windows either east or west. I can't see much else but I tried recording some sound (uploads…sometime). Had a tiny repos and have now given up on the mattress. On to another cup of Nescafe to squelch the growls.”
