Congo bishops plead for peace, national unity
Catholic World News - September 24, 2012
Calling for peace in a strife-torn nation that has suffered the bloodiest conflict since World War II, a delegation from the Congolese Episcopal Conference met with the leadership of the rebel March 23 Movement (M23) in North Kivu province.
