Rome: Italy is receiving assistance from France and Germany in coping with the migrants crossing the Mediterranean Sea from Africa, some two months after a European Union (EU) agreement on distributing migrants arriving by boat, the Interior Ministry in Rome said. To date, 13 member states have stated their willingness to absorb more than 8,000 people, a spokeswoman for the European Commission said this week. The Italian authorities have registered more than 42,000 migrants arriving by boat so far this year, well above the comparable figure for last year of around 30,000. If a centre-right political alliance win the September 25 elections, as pre-election polling predicts, they have pledged stronger action against migrants. Giorgia Meloni, leader of the extreme right-wing Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy) party, which is leading in the polls, says she plans to intern migrants in camps in North Africa.

There is “solid evidence“ that Rwandan troops have been fighting alongside the M23 rebel group in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo and providing it with weapons and support, according to a United Nations group of experts. Despite repeated denials by Kigali, there is “solid evidence” that Rwandan troops attacked soldiers inside DR of Congo and aided the M23 rebel group with weapons and support, a United Nations group of experts has said. The DRC has repeatedly accused Rwanda of backing the militia, which stems from the long fallout from the 1994 genocide in Rwanda and has captured swathes of territory in recent months. Kigali repeatedly denied supporting M23 and the armed group maintains it does not receive Rwandan support. But Rwanda’s government has said in a statement it would not comment on an “unpublished and unvalidated report,” adding that an earlier report by the experts’ group in June “contained none of these false allegations”.
