Grave situation in Congo as UN mission downgraded.....

A controversal operation in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has ended and replaced with a revised five-month mandate. The Kimya 2 operation over the past nine months has been criticised by human rights groups for supporting a Congolese army accused of rape and murders. However, army leaders have said that the mission against Hutu Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) forces in the east of the country has been a success. Al Jazeera's Mohamed Adow reports from North Kivu in the east of the DRC.
