Armed groups in eastern DRCongo agree to end fighting

Leaders from several armed groups in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo have decided to end their deadly clashes, particularly between the ethnic Hutu and Hunde communities, a Western non-government organisation said Thursday. The deal should stop the ethnic conflicts which have occurred in this region over the last few months, and which the United Nations said have caused 264 deaths and displaced tens of thousands of people. "It's an historic event," Danilo Giannese of the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) said of the agreement Tuesday in Masisi.
