KINSHASA (Reuters) - Democratic Republic of Congo President Joseph Kabila has renounced U.N. support for a military campaign against Rwandan Hutu rebels and criticised international interference in national affairs, the government spokesman said on Sunday.
U.N. peacekeepers were due to support an operation against the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) but paused assistance last week over concerns about human rights abuses by two Congolese generals tapped to lead the campaign.
