** FILE ** In this Oct. 2, 2009, file photo, a Congolese girl walks past a Uruguayan United Nations peacekeeper as he stands watch on a hill near a peacekeeper encampment in Kimua in the heart of territory held by Rwandan Hutu rebels in eastern Congo. Congolese community leaders say they warned local U.N. officials and army commanders of the dangers and begged them to protect villagers days before rebels gang-raped scores of people from a month-old baby boy to a 110-year-old great-great-grandmother.
