KAMPALA (Reuters) – Congo and defeated M23 rebels are to sign a peace deal on Monday aimed at ending the country’s most serious conflict in a decade, though other militias still roam and stability remains a distant prospect.

ANTANANARIVO, Oct 26 (Reuters) – Results dribbled in from
Madagascar’s presidential election on Saturday but two
front-runners said a second round looked likely in a vote many
hope will restore investor confidence in an economy left
paralysed by a coup four years ago.
A credible poll on the Indian Ocean island would be an
important step towards luring back tourists as well as oil and
mining companies who were scared off when mutinous troops swept
former disc jockey Andry Rajoelina to power in 2009.
