• Conflict Minerals, Rebels and Child Soldiers in Congo

    Warlords, soldiers, and child laborers all toil over a mineral you've never even heard of. Coltan is a conflict mineral in nearly every cell phone, laptop, and electronic device. It's also tied to the deaths of over 5 million people in Congo since 1990.

    Rwanda has accused the Democratic Republic of Congo of shelling its territory and said it would not tolerate such "provocation". The D.R of Congo said the accusation was a sign of Rwanda wanted to intervene openly in its eastern war. Meanwhile, a UN spokesman said though the UN had not observed any firing into Rwanda by the Congolese Army, UN peacekeepers in eastern Congo had witnessed M23 rebels firing into Rwandan territory over the past week.

    French/Nat The once thriving Congolese capital Brazzaville has been transformed into a virtual ghost town following four months of fighting in the country's bitter civil war. Almost all the residents of the city have fled and those that remain are too frightened to venture out. The streets are deserted, but for marauding bands of soldiers. APTV has this special report. The Congolese capital of Brazzaville has been ravaged over the last four months by a bitter civil war. Nearly all the town's civilian population has fled to the countryside or across the river to Kinshasa, in neighbouring Congo. Aid workers say only about 10 percent of the city's 800-thousand residents remain. The streets are now the domain of militia members from both sides. But the capital is hel...

Wide of security forces by bodies of suspected assailants killed in battle ++GRAPHIC++ STORYLINE: On October 28th 2013 the army of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) had succeeded in taking back M23 rebel-held towns, in what appears to be a turning point in the conflict. The civilian population, which reportedly suffered grave abuses under the rebels, poured into the streets to welcome the soldiers, running alongside their tanks. Over the weekend, Congolese soldiers took back Kiwanja, Rutshuru, Buhumba and Kibumba in the eastern region of the DRC. The soldiers faced little to no resistance. Of the five Rumangabo is the most important militarily as it is home to one of the largest military camps in the DRC's troubled east. The Congolese army abandoned their posts in the eastern DRC and fled in the face of an advancing rebel army just over a year ago. The M23 rebels are one of many military factions fighting for control in the country's volatile east. At first ignored, the M23 rebels were buoyed by what a United Nations panel of experts tasked with investigating the conflict said were arms, money and troops from neighbouring Rwanda, the DRC's smaller but militarily powerful neighbour. Fighting between the two sides has flared and ebbed throughout the past year, each time ending with stalled peace talks hosted in Kampala, the capital of neighbouring Uganda. *** A delegation of politicians and generals visited the northern town of Rutshuru in the Democratic Republic of Congo on November 9th to show the government had wrested back control from M23 rebel fighters. Rutshuru, 60 kilometres (37 miles) from the capital Goma, was controlled by the M23 from April 2012 until last week when they were driven out by a quick national army advance with logistical and fire-support from the United Nations. After soldiers marched into the town on Saturday, people gathered together outside and were told to stay calm, not to attack former collaborators of the M23 rebels, but to help authorities seek out those responsible for crimes during the occupation. Later people sang and played music and there was beer available, but the generals had a serious message to convey, issuing a warning to armed groups that they would not be tolerated. *** He said around 40 people were killed in the exchange of fire, including 16 at the military base, 16 at the airport and eight at the TV station.

The Congolese army is also supported by 3,000 MONUSCO troops, the UN's largest mission in the world. Our reporters went to investigate these brutal mass killings in eastern DR Congo. Our team looked at what is preventing the armed forces from protecting Beni’s citizens. Is there collusion between the Congolese army and the rebels? Why have UN forces failed in their mission to protect civilians? Warning – graphic content in this video.

French/Nat The once thriving Congolese capital Brazzaville has been transformed into a virtual ghost town following four months of fighting in the country's bitter civil war. Almost all the residents of the city have fled and those that remain are too frightened to venture out. The streets are deserted, but for marauding bands of soldiers. APTV has this special report. The Congolese capital of Brazzaville has been ravaged over the last four months by a bitter civil war. Nearly all the town's civilian population has fled to the countryside or across the river to Kinshasa, in neighbouring Congo. Aid workers say only about 10 percent of the city's 800-thousand residents remain. The streets are now the domain of militia members from both sides. But the capital is held by rebel soldiers loyal to ex-president Sassou Nguesso. His rebel troops are known as the Cobras. For them, this is a war with few trained soldiers, little discipline and scarcely any vehicles. In Cobra-held territory electricity and telephones are nearly non-existant and fuel is in short supply. But the Cobras say they will continue fighting to protect what is important to them despite their poor equipment. SOUNDBITE:(French) "We are not fighting because we like it or for personal reasons of finance or anything else. The reason we are fighting is the protection of our families". SUPER CAPTION: Cobra Fighter The badly armed fighters have managed to hold at bay the better supplied troops of President Pascal Lissouba and have captured three quarters of the country, as well as holding their positions in the capital. Gunfire echoes regularly around the wreckage of the town, and the few people living there, the Cobras included, live in fear of Lissouba's helicopters, which have recently begun dropping heavy bombs. Outside the compound of former president Sassou Nguesso is a reminder of the origins of the war. This armoured personnel carrier was sent by President Lissouba to kill Sassou Nguesso in a move which sparked the conflict. The former president left Brazzaville when the fighting got too close for comfort. But his troops remain, patrolling the streets and manning checkpoints, their bravery fuelled by beer and their AK-47s, the only commodities they seem to have enough of.
