African Leaders Sign Deal for DRC

Sunday's deal was signed by the presidents of DRC, South Africa, Rwanda, Tanzania, Congo and South Sudan, as well as senior representatives from Uganda, Angola, Zambia, Burundi and the Central African Republic.

Violence persisted in the DRC last year despite the 2009 peace agreement that includes integrating Congolese rebels into the regular army. Separate talks are under way in Uganda between the rebel group M23 and Congolese officials.
