KINSHASA - Democratic Republic of Congo President Joseph Kabila has suspended military operations against rebels in the eastern North and South Kivu provinces following a rash of desertions in the army, the government and army said on Thursday.

The eastern region of the vast central African country remains unstable nearly ten years after the signing of a peace deal ending a wider war, and Congolese troops and UN peacekeepers regularly clash with several rebel groups.

Earlier this month, hundreds of government troops abandoned their posts, sparking violent clashes within the army and allowing rebels to seize territory.
