The eastern Congolese town of Bukavu is reportedly calm Friday, as reports indicate rebel troops have begun withdrawing. The rebel assault on Bukavu sparked violent protests Thursday in at least three cities in Congo, including the capital, Kinshasa, were three people were killed. Protesters blamed the U.N. peacekeeping force in Congo for failing to prevent the rebel takeover. Hear NPR's Steve Inskeep and Carter Dougherty of Global Radio News.
