Author: Reports | Published: Sunday, April 2, 2023

More than 40 South Sudanese soldiers have reportedly arrived in the Democratic Republic of Congo to join an East African force fighting a rebel group.

Some of theĀ  750 troops promised by South Sudan are expected to be flown to Dr. Congo on Monday morning.

They are part of a seven-nation regional force created last June to try to stabilize eastern DR Congo by supervising a withdrawal of M23 rebels.

Rwanda denies it backs the group which has seized large parts of North Kivu province, triggering a humanitarian crisis.
