The International Criminal Court says it will look into allegations of war crimes by armed groups in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

This comes several weeks after the Congolese government made a new formal referral to the ICC over violence involving M23 rebels that has displaced around a million people in North Kivu province.

President Fรฉlix Tshisekedi, as well as UN investigators, have accused Rwanda of backing the group which relaunched a rebellion there in late 2021.

The Kigali government denies this.

The ICC has already convicted three former militia leaders over conflicts in DR Congo.
