On 1 September the mandate for EU-troops to secure peace in the Congolese town of Bunia and its airport ended. Among others, 350 German soldiers took part in the mission that started in June, although their task was limited to providing transport capabilities, including rescue flights to Europe.
As has been understood, the total of 1500 soldiers at least suppressed further murdering and plundering in the region. - One may see that as a successful beginning that now is to be steadied by a bigger contingent of UN-troops.
