The Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUC) yesterday welcomed the surrender this past weekend of a senior leader of the Rwandan rebel group FDLR (Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda) and three other senior officers.  They were accompanied by 15 FDLR fighters who also volunteered to join a UN-run disarmament and repatriation programme, along with their dependents.  This brings to 640 the number of FDLR fighters that have joined the repatriation drive since January.
