Congo peace mission 'gains traction'


Community groups in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo have written to the United Nations pleading for European troops to be sent to stop atrocities. They say they have witnessed scenes never seen in their history and that UN peacekeepers are powerless to help. World Affairs correspondent Mark Doyle reports from the Kibati refugee camp near the eastern city of Goma and Lord Malloch Brown, the minister responsible for Africa, explains what the UK government can do to improve the situation.
