Tribal Clashes Continue in Congo

Tribal fighting in Congo's northeastern town of Bunia increases, despite a May 17 truce to halt clashes that have left thousands dead and forced hundreds of thousands to flee. Demands increase for the immediate dispatch of a U.N. peacekeeping force to stabilize the area. Hear reporter David Aronson. (Please note that this story was corrected on air on June 3, 2003: "During Bob Edwards' interview with David Aronson about the dire situation in the Congo, Aronson was identified as being with the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. While he has done work for the commission, he is currently traveling independently and not as a representative of the commission.")
