KINSHASA, 25 July (IRIN) - Most
of the people living in the village of Kigalama, in the Democratic Republic
of Congo's (DRC) South Kivu Province, have fled after Rwandan rebels launched
an attack there last week, the provincial governor said on Monday.
"Thirteen villagers and seven Rwandan
rebels were killed," Didace Kaningini Kyoto, the governor, said.
He said almost 5,000 people normally
lived in Kigalama, about 130km southwest of the provincial capital, Bukavu.
Most of them have now fled.
