UN Slow to Stop DR Congo Abuses
All sides in the conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo are guilty of murder, rape and forcing children to fight, according to the Human Rights Watch. The New York based human rights group says the UN has been slow to react to the worsening crisis in the east which is developing into a Hutu-Tutsi war. The Congolese arm has threatened an all out offensive against both Tutsi and Hutu militias in the region. Refugees have been streaming across the border into Uganda by the thousands.
