New security concerns in the region as rebels resurface in DR Congo

The fear gripping the region is due to the ongoing conflict in eastern Congo, the long wait for the deployment of an international intervention force to keep peace between the M23 and Kinshasa government and the emergence of ADF.
Choosing to strike the way it has now, and inside the Congo, ADF is a security worry and setback for a region that until now is still working out the modality of deploying an international brigade to oversee the fragile ceasefire in North Kivu.
While Gen Sejusa has not been linked to ADF, security analysts say the resurgence of an otherwise decimated rebel outfit into a formidable 800 strong armed force, at a time when Gen Sejusa has just fallen out with his boss and fled the country, is a curious coincidence.
