ABA, DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO — Since South Sudan's government captured a rebel base last week in the country's southwest, hundreds of refugees have poured into Democratic Republic of Congo.

Among them may be rebels, and the Congolese army, wary of conflict spilling into their nation, is arresting any suspected fighters.

Refugees, however, say innocent young men are being caught up in the crackdown, too.

But the refugees in Meri camp who spoke to VOA said they are not celebrating just yet.

East and Central Africa Programme Director
