UN Calls for Calm in Rwanda Following Congolese Refugee Protests

The calls by the UN come after thousands of Congolese refugees clashed with Rwandan soldiers while marching to demand better living conditions at Kiziba Refugee Camp in Karongi District. The protests are said to have followed a decision by the World Food Programme to reduce food assistance by 25% due to a shortage of funds.
