Security Council rebukes DR Congo rebels

The United Nations Security Council has urged all parties in the Democratic Republic of Congo to stick to the schedules established for the disengagement of peacekeeping troops.

The statement came in response to the refusal by a key rebel group the Rally for Congolese Democracy to allow Moroccan soldiers permission to land in Kisangani on Sunday.

The council said the rebels' action contravened its resolutions.

The rebels had said they would not allow the troop deployment until the UN condemned alleged ceasefire violations by government forces.

They have since reversed and then re-reversed their decision.
