"You sent soldiers to wipe us out, but here we are." That was the chilling message from Ugandan rebels during the latest massacre in the northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo, according to one survivor. The rebels slashed 24 men, women and children to death using axes and machetes, said Veronique, declining to give her full name, in a shaky voice from a makeshift hospital bed. "Where are your protectors? If you want to stay in peace, you must not send us your soldiers," the killers said as they spread havoc through the village of Eringeti late Friday.
