Congo: Congolization



Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire)

November 26, 2005: Over the last week, a MONUC operation In Itrui province (northeast Congo), has killed 57 rebels. UN troops from Pakistan, Morocco, and Bangladesh supported 700 Congo troops in the operation. The operation began November 21. The UN is trying to let Congolese troops take the lead in military operations when possible. Call it "Congolization."

November 23, 2005: New fighting broke out in Katanga province, as the army continued pursuing Mai-Mai militia fighters there. Between 50,000 and 60,000 civilians have fled the fighting. Katanga is a particularly sensitive area in the Congo. Katangan separatists launched rebellions in the 1960s and 1970s.
