The Congo army clashed with rebels in a town outside the provincial capital, Goma, on Friday. UN military spokesman Maj. Shardool Sharma said soldiers fired mortars at rebels just north of Kibati, and rebels responded with gunfire. Kibati is six miles north of Goma. The small village has a refugee population of about 45,000 and many took to the road again Friday as the latest fighting broke out.
