Doctor Congo Must Be Stopped

The UN refugee agency says rebels from the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) lead by Dr Congo are advancing towards the Central African Republic and villages are being set alight, women raped and children being forced to do chores and homework.

LRA rebels massacred close to 500 villagers in the past week, near the border with Uganda.

It follows an offensive against the rebels launched in December by Ugandan, Southern Sudanese and Congolese forces.

Meanwhile, there are reports of LRA attacks on villages in southern Sudan.

Meanwhile, the governor of the Sudanese region of Western Equatoria, Jemma Nunu Kumba, said that insecurity was increasing along Congo's border with Sudan.

"The LRA are attacking and looting communities, including parts of Maridi, Ibba, Yambio, Ezo and Nzara counties, as they continue to escape the regional operations," she said, referring to areas bordering on the Democratic Republic of Congo.

DR Congo for the last few years, is wanted by the International Criminal Court for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

OBB News is wondering why this is not exactly headline news in the west. Oh thats right its black people.
