More than 30,000 people have fled their homes in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo following heavy fighting between the army and M23 rebels near the border with Uganda. The BBC reports that about 5,000 fled to Uganda, while 25,000 others are camping in schools and churches in the area. The UN’s humanitarian affairs office says that on Saturday, the Rwandan and Congolese armies had accused each other of shelling across the border.
