M23, the Congolese rebel group, gave up fighting last week. They and the Congolese government are expected to officialize a peace deal. Although the M23 has made the most headlines in recent history, there are other rebel groups in the region, such as the Mai Mai and the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda FDLR.
