UN Congo peace-keepers killed

Reuters reports that at least eight UN peace-keepers have been killed in the Congo's Ituri province. Details are limited at this stage.

The Reuters report also notes:
About one third of the world's biggest U.N. peacekeeping mission is based in Ituri but attacks on civilians remain frequent. Clashes between militia during the last two months alone have displaced some 70,000 civilians, aid workers say.

Hmm, sounds like things aren't going too well. I wonder if the UN had an exit strategy when it went in?
