Uganda says the Democratic Republic of Congo's government will sign a peace deal on Monday with rebel group M23, which gave up its fight this week.

A spokesman for the Ugandan government, which has hosted peace talks between Congo and M23, says the peace deal is ready and will detail the process for demobilizing rebel fighters. Some will likely be integrated into the Congolese army.
