Democratic Republic of Congo: M23

Although Congo is no stranger to armed rebel groups, the country’s M23 rebels emerged in 2012 as the most well-equipped and deadly armed group to hit the scene. The M23 rebels are composed of soldiers from a defunct rebel army made up of fighters from the Tutsi ethnic group that was targeted in Rwanda’s 1994 genocide.
