D.R. of Congo: More Violence in Eastern Congo

Kakaluigi continues blogging about the worsening security situation in eastern Congo along the Rwandan border, writing about an attack at Kaniola [Fr] in which a girl less than ten years old was raped and a pregnant woman eviscerated.  MP Vicky Katumwa of the People's Party for Reconstruction and Democracy (PPRD) is calling for immediate action.  She says that the recent violence is not a communal conflict among the people of Kivu; rather the attacks are perpetrated by the FDLR and the Interhamwe, the Hutu militia that carried out the mass killings of Tutsis during the Rwandan genocide.
