U.N. embargo on firearms to eastern D.R.C is being violated

Latest Human Rights Watch report on the very place I am in right now. Check it out:
According to local sources, local government officials have delivered firearms to civilians in Masisi, North Kivu, long the site of conflict between different political and military groups. Other shipments have been delivered to Ituri, another persistently troubled area in northeastern Congo. U.N. sources reported that some 300 Congolese high school students, refugees in neighboring Rwanda, abruptly left their schools and are said to be undergoing military training.

Good idea. Next year's elections should be fun here.
