Fighting has broken out in eastern Democratic Republic Congo between UN-backed government troops and M23 rebels, forcing people to flee.

IGIHE reporter at the scene says there is heavy gunfire and shelling north of the regional capital Goma.

Two Congolese were injured on their territory while a Rwandan national on the Rwandan territory was injured while in the garden ploughing.

The incidence happened in Bugeshi sector of Rubavu District.

Nearly 2500 people have been displaced since Morning when the fighting broke out.

In a telephone interview with the Executive Secretary of Bugeshi sector, Nsabimana Etienne confirmed that Congolese are fleeing to Rwanda.

However,”Rwandan territory is secured from the attack.”

The fight follows the US sanctions on Gen. Sultan Makenga of M23.
M23 has been fighting with FARDC since April, 2012.
