UNITED NATIONS - The UN Security Council condemned on Monday attacks by armed rebels in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and demanded an end to all outside support for multiple insurgencies plaguing the provinces on the Congolese border with Rwanda.

M23 rebel advances earlier this month sent the Congolese government army fleeing in droves, displaced thousands of civilians, killed an Indian UN peacekeeper and stoked tensions between Congo and Rwanda. Congo accused the Rwandan army of directly equipping and supporting the M23 rebellion.

Rwanda's government strenuously denied the accusations despite evidence provided by UN experts supporting allegations that high-level military officials in Kigali were supporting and supplying the rebellion in eastern Congo.

In a statement, the 15-member Security Council condemned "all outside support to all armed groups in the DRC and... demand that all forms of support to them cease immediately."
