2,000 Members of Rwandan Army Enter Congo

Congolese government official Lambert Mende says "We have officially asked the Rwandan army to participate in the disarmament operations of the Interahamwe (Hutu militia) which have begun," There is some concern the Hutu militiamen may retaliate against civilians.

This is a rare move between Congo and Rhiwanda to agree to step up efforts against Rwandan Hutu militants, of which neither country can seem to eradicate
Louise Mushikiwabo, the Rwandan minister of information, says "There is new momentum and the government of Rwanda is pleased the fundamental obstacle to stability for the last 15 years ... is finally being tackled,"

The Hutu rebels fled to Congo in 1994 after helping carry out the genocide in which more than 500,000 ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus were killed, and have remained in Congo untouched, heavily armed, and in control of lucrative mines in remote hills and forests.
