ABA, DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO Since South Sudan's government captured a rebel base last week in the country's southwest, hundreds of refugees have poured into Democratic Republic of Congo.

Among them may be rebels, and the Congolese army, wary of conflict spilling into their nation, is arresting any suspected fighters.

Refugees, however, say innocent young men are being caught up in the crackdown, too.

Grace Gaba, speaking from the border of town of Aba where some 30,000 refugees have taken shelter, said her brother, Joseph Moro, was arrested by Congolese troops at a checkpoint last week and has been held ever since.
