Hundreds of people hit the streets in two cities in the Democratic Republic of Congo yesterday to protest neighbouring Rwanda’s alleged meddling in the country’s affairs. Relations between the two central African states, which have long been tense, boiled over last week after DRC accused Rwanda of backing the resurgent M23 rebel group active in its volatile east. An AFP correspondent there said the protesters toted banners bearing pro-military slogans and chanted ‘Rwandans go home’.
