08/09/12: BBC News reports African leaders have failed to agree at a summit in Uganda on deploying a new force to tackle militia groups in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. “We will meet again in four weeks,” Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni said. Last month, the African Union called for a force to be established within weeks, as conflict escalated. The UN says nearly 250,000 people have been displaced since April following a rebellion launched by renegade General Bosco Ntaganda, whose M23 rebel movement is accused by the UN and Congolese government of receiving military backing from Rwanda. The leaders of Congo and Rwanda – Joseph Kabila and Paul Kagame respectively – attended the summit in Uganda in an effort to resolve the conflict.
