Fighting between DR Congo's military and M23 rebels killed more than 900 combattants in the country's restive east before the insurgents were routed, a senior military official told AFP on Monday.
"Between May 20 and November 5, the... (army) had 201 dead and 680 wounded. On the M23 side, there were 721 dead and 543 captured, including 72 Rwandans and 28 Ugandans," said General Jean-Lucien Bahuma, a senior commander in the North Kivu region where the fighting took place.
Three UN peacekeepers were also killed.
