Nine people were killed last week in Minembwe, a town well to the south of here. There are real fears that this could be the trigger to widespread violence in the Kivus.

A doctor was killed Saturday outside of Sake.

And assassinations continue in Bukavu.

All of these things alone would be business-as-usual (I'm sorry to say). Together, they suggest that we may be headed for much worse.

And the peacekeepers are a little bit distracted at the moment.
