GOMA, Congo (AP) — The Congolese government and M23 rebels say that violence has resumed between the two sides in the country's volatile east.
Congolese army spokesman Lt. Col. Olivier Hamuli confirmed that heavy fighting broke out Friday around 4 a.m. in Kanyamahoro.
Each side accused the other of sabotaging the peace process after days of high-level peace talks in the Ugandan capital failed to yield a breakthrough.
Talks have repeatedly stalled in recent months amid sporadic clashes between Congolese forces and M23 rebels in eastern Congo.
U.N. envoys have said that this time there were disagreements over amnesty, disarmament, integration and security arrangements for the M23 rebels.
M23 launched its rebellion against the government last year and briefly seized the city of Goma.
