Villages left traumatized after shells hit schools in eastern DRC

In eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, clashes between the army and the M23 rebel group are leaving innocent people caught in the crossfire.

In the village of Biruma, shells hit the local school and killed two children aged six and seven on June 10. In the neighboring village of Katale, shells pierced the tin roof of a school and destroyed two classrooms.

The DRC accuses Rwanda of abetting the rebel group- a charge that Rwanda denies- and both countries accuse the other of carrying out cross-border shelling.
