Rwandan and Ugandan troops, onetime allies in the fight to topple Congo's president, traded ferocious mortar and artillery barrages Monday in an effort to control this northern Congolese city and its airport. The fighting surged despite a heavy afternoon downpour and prompted the leaders of Rwanda and Uganda to rush to southern Uganda for talks on ending the confrontation that imperils their campaign to oust Congolese President Laurent Kabila.

Recent fighting between two countries that are patrons of rebel factions in Congo could wreck a shaky peace deal to end the Central African country's yearlong civil war, analysts say. The upsurge of violence could also strengthen the resolve of Congolese President Laurent Kabila not to share power with those seeking to overthrow him, and win him the image of cooperative "good guy" in trying to end the conflict. Rwanda and Uganda were among six countries to sign the July 10 peace agreement.
