Nkunda calls for ceasefire after breaking previous one

Laurent Nkunda, an infamous warlord leader in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, has called for a ceasefire after five days of clashes between his forces and the national army.

"We are asking for it to stop so we can talk, because this is a problem that can only be resolved through dialogue. Arms will not solve anything," he said.

This came days after Nkunda himself had broken the previous ceasefire agreement, according to the UN mission in the country MONUC.

It is doubtful that Nkunda actually wants a ceasefire and this is probably just a scheme for his battered forces to buy time.
