On Saturday, government forces carried out air strikes against Runyonyi, a town near the Rwandan border which is held by the mutineers, the army said. A representative of a local civil society group told AFP Sunday that "there has been heavy weapon firing this morning in Runyonyi. People are fleeing the hills around Runyonyi and heading for Jomba and Tchengerero." A spokesman for one breakaway group, the March 23 movement (M23), said civilians were also fleeing the Bunagana region, some crossing into Uganda. "Massive population displacement is taking place because of fear of fighting," Lieutenant Colonel Vianney Kazarana said.
