Congo: March 18, 2005


The Ituri Brigade's "cordon and search" operation outside of Bunia is continuing. The "Zumbe area" near Bunia had been the center of the operation. UN troops reported they seized weapons from militiamen identified as belonging to the FNI (National Integration Front), the militia accused of killing nine UN peacekeepers on February 25. A UN officer said that peacekeepers had seen a "flow of arms coming from Uganda" into the Congo.
