Peacekeeping Mission Will Remain in Congo

From Times Wire Reports

The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously to extend for a year the peacekeeping mission in Congo in hopes of overseeing the withdrawal of foreign forces and disarming combatants.

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan can decide at any time over the next year to increase the number of peacekeepers to their authorized strength of 5,537 troops and military observers, up from 2,366, the resolution said.
