Congolese and Rwandan oppositionists  demonstrate in de Matongo neighbourhood of Brussels for an end to Rwanda's interference in DR Congo.

The demonstrators argue that Rwanda perpetuates the war in eastern DR Congo, by arming and supporting rebel militias such as M23, and plundering the country's mineral wealth.

About 25,000 Congolese and about 10,000 Rwandans live in Matongo.
