Fears as DR Congo conflict threatens nature reserve

Renewed fighting in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo is threatening one of the world's largest and most important nature reserves.

Rwanda has been accused of fuelling the conflict by providing recruits and weapons to the rebels, a charge the Rwandan government denies.

Congolese soldiers are also trying to capture a mutinous general so he can be brought to trial at the International Criminal Court.

The BBC's Gabriel Gatehouse reports from eastern DR Congo, and meets the man tasked with policing the park amid intense fighting.
