Scores of rebels from the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) have laid down their weapons in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) as part of a voluntary disarmament exercise.

The rebels say they want to go back home to Rwanda and negotiate with the government.

Some of their leaders are wanted in Rwanda for their alleged involvement in a genocide two decades ago.
