Rwanda is being accused by the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) of supporting the M23 rebels. Drone images released by the DRC government appear to show Rwandan armed forces incursions into the city of Tongo and Rutshuru in North Kivu to aid the M23. The M23 rebels have occupied parts of North Kivu since last year. The DRC accuses Rwanda of supporting the predominantly Tutsi rebellion, while Rwanda accuses the DRC of collusion with the FDLR, an armed group of Rwandan Hutu origin. The UN has expressed concerns about a potential direct confrontation between the two countries.
