    KINSHASA: An army colonel deserted the Democratic Republic of Congo’s government forces with at least 30 of his men to join the ranks of the M23 rebels stirring unrest in the country’s east. Colonel Richard Bisamza, an ethnic Tutsi, was supposed to travel from his base in the country’s restive North Kivu province to the capital of Kinshasa for an appointment but instead fled to forests near the city to join the rebels.
