Congo uprising is history repeating
Associated Press

NAIROBI // History is repeating itself yet again in eastern Congo. Rebels supported by Rwanda are on the march. Civilians are fleeing. And higher powers appear to be taking sides.
Congo and Rwanda have been at this stage before. First in 1996, then in 1998. Also in 2004 and 2008. The first two conflicts had their roots in Rwanda's 1994 genocide, but now the fighting is mostly over mineral wealth.

Congo is rich in diamonds, gold, copper, cobalt and tungsten. The provincial capital of Goma, which fell to the M23 rebel group on Tuesday, is a major processing point for minerals coming out of eastern Congo.

Rwanda insists it is not aiding the M23 rebels, though a UN group of experts report written this year said Rwanda and Uganda were doing exactly that.
