English to French: Just another peace-making spasm in DR Congo General field: Law/Patents Detailed field: Government / Politics
Source text - English Mostly comprising ethnic Tutsi deserters from the Congolese army, the M23 take their name from an earlier failed peace deal, signed on 23 March 2009, that was supposed to integrate them with the army.
The 2009 deal was itself the product of the shaky peace that ended the 1998-2003 second Congo war, also known as the great war of Africa, which involved eight African nations and 25 armed groups, and which killed an estimated 5.4 million people.

L'accord de 2009 était lui-même le produit d'une paix incertaine qui a mis fin à la deuxième guerre du Congo de 1998-2003, également connue comme la plus grande guerre d'Afrique, qui a impliquée huit nations africaines et ving-cinq groupes armés, et qui a tué une population estimée à 5.4 millions.
