Crossing the Border

Displaced people cross the border from DR Congo into Rwanda, as seen from Gisenyi, on Nov. 20 after Congolese Revolutionary Army members fought with the government army on the periphery of Goma, the capital of Congo's North Kivu province. Rwanda accused U.N.-backed Congolese forces of shelling its territory during a battle with rebels near the border on Nov. 19 but said it had no plans to respond militarily to what it called Kinshasa's "provocation".
