Refugees from the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo have fled their country to Uganda fearing a resumption of clashes between the Congolese government troops and the M23 rebels. The refugees currently at the Nyakabande Transit Site in Kisoro district have been streaming in on a daily basis to escape violence that they say is imminent in their restive homeland.
