The Congolese government delegation, right, sits opposite a row of empty seats intended for the delegation of Congolese M23 rebels, who did not turn up for the crucial meeting, at peace talks being held in Kampala, Uganda Monday, Dec. 10, 2012. Representatives of rebels attending peace talks with the Congolese government dodged a crucial meeting Monday at which the government delegation was to respond to earlier criticism, a development that could jeopardize negotiations to end the crisis in eastern Congo.
