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.
