Congo rebels declared unilateral ceasefire

Congo rebels declared unilateral ceasefire

The rebels of M23 movement have declared a unilateral ceasefire ahead of a second round of peace talks with the government of Democratic Republic of Congo, the movement’s representative said Tuesday.

The situation in Congo became tense in mid-November when rebels seized the administrative center of the Northern Kivu province.

They are demanding the release of political prisoners, dissolving the electoral commission which they blamed for unfair elections in 2011 and the beginning of talks which would involve citizens and the opposition.
