Congolese refugees flood into Uganda

Humanitarian agencies taken by surprise as tens of thousands cross border in just a few days.

    About 30,000 people have fled their homes in DR Congo since Thursday to seek safety in neighbouring Uganda.

    Many say they ran for their lives after a group of rebels started terrorising their villages.

    Al Jazeera's Malcolm Webb reports from the makeshift refugee camp that has been set up in western Uganda.
