The 6,000 UN peacekeepers and 4,000 French troops are distrusted by the government and the rebels, feeling that the foreigners favor the other side. Both the government and rebels want all the foreign troops out of the country. This, of course, would allow the civil war to resume. There are national elections scheduled for October, 2005. This is supposed to elect a new government that will be acceptable to everyone. It's uncertain if that will work. The rebellion began two years ago, and was interrupted by French and UN peacekeepers. But the basic economic issues between the northerners and southerners have not been resolved. A 400 kilometer long "cease fire line" keeps government and rebel forces from each other. The main complaint of the southerners is that four million migrants from foreign countries have moved into the north and prospered. But this prosperity is seen achieved at the expense of many of the "native born" southerners. It's all about money and tribal identity among 16 million people in the country.
