GOMA, Congo (AP) -- The Congolese army took three towns in eastern Congo Sunday in fresh fighting against the M23 rebels, said the army spokesman.

The army says it has found two mass graves in Kibumba, a town it took on Saturday, according to the provincial governor.

The army on Sunday gained control of Rutshuru, Kiwanja and Buhumba towns in the Rutshuru area of North Kivu province, near Congo's border with Rwanda, army spokesman Lt. Col. Olivier Hamuli told The Associated Press.


More at link - the AP demands excerpting and linking (rightly so in my opinion.)

Every time I start to feel boring, I remember there is a monthly magazine devoted to elevators.
