THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO IS SEEKING THE EXTRADITION OF M23 REBELS WHO FLED TO NEIGHBORING COUNTRIES FOLLOWING RECENT CLASHES WITH THE NATIONAL ARMY (FARDC). INFORMATION MINISTER LAMBERT MENDE SAYS THE REQUEST IS PART OF A GOVERNMENT EFFORT TO END ARMED INSURGENCIES. HIS COMMENTS CAME AFTER THE FARDC RECAPTURED THE EASTERN TOWN OF BUNAGANA, ONE OF THE LAST REMAINING STRONGHOLDS OF THE M23 REBELS. MENDE TELLS REPORTER PETER CLOTTEY THAT KINSHASA WANTS TO RESTORE ORDER TO PARTS OF EASTERN CONGO THAT VULNERABLE TO REBEL ATTACKS.
