At least two people have been reported shot and wounded in protests over food cuts provoked by UN funding shortages.


Congolese refugees in Rwanda say soldiers have shot and wounded at least two marchers protesting over food rationing at their United Nations run camp.

2000 people joined the protests - with refugees occupying the UNHCR office in Karongi town, 15km from the camp. 

The UNHCR said last month it would be cutting rations by 25% because of funding shortages.
