A newly deployed police officer (R) walks in Goma port December 2, 2012. Hundreds of rebel fighters, singing and brandishing weapons, pulled out of Congo's eastern border city of Goma on Saturday, raising hopes for negotiations to end the insurgency. The withdrawal of the M23 rebel movement from Goma on Lake Kivu, a strategic hub in Democratic Republic of Congo's war-scarred east, was agreed in a deal brokered by presidents of the Great Lakes states under Uganda's leadership a week ago.

A child walks through an abandoned Internal Displaced People (IDP) camp in Nyaruchinga, near Goma November 22, 2012. Congolese troops were fighting back on Thursday against rebels who rejected calls from African leaders to quit the eastern city of Goma, captured earlier this week. Thousands of people fled the area of clashes around the town of Sake, as M23 rebel fighters rushed from Goma to reinforce their positions there against a counter-offensive by the army. Locals said the prisoners escaped as the Congolese Revolutionary Army overran the town on Monday. REUTERS/James Akena (DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO - Tags: CIVIL UNREST POLITICS CONFLICT)

Congolese warlord Thomas Lubanga Dyilo listens to the first sentence delivered by the International Criminal Court (ICC), at the ICC courtroom in the Hague July 10, 2012. Lubanga became the first person to be sentenced by the ICC on Tuesday, when judges sent him to jail for 14 years for recruiting child soldiers. Lubanga was found guilty in March of abducting boys and girls under the age of 15 and forcing them to fight in a war in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Many Congolese blame the Belgians for leaving their country chronically ill-prepared for independence in 1960.

TO BE RELEASED WITH STORY BC-CONGO-COLLAPSE.
Traditional Mai Mai militia youth patrols the eastern Congolese town of Fizi as part of a new unified national army forged under a peace deal aimed at ending five years of conflict in the vast central African nation. A July peace deal brought together the main warring sides, incorporating various rebel groups into the government and in theory uniting countless militias and armed factions under the banner of a unified national army. But as the former Zaire creeps slowly towards peace, the country's new leaders face the monumental task of rebuilding a nation shattered by a five-year war that killed three million people, most from hunger and disease.
