Democratic Republic of the Congo: Violence rises to unprecedented levels

15-05-2013 Feature

Violence has reached unprecedented levels in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) as fighting between the army and armed groups intensifies. The situation is compounded by inter-ethnic tensions and violence between armed groups in North Kivu and South Kivu.

To fund war surgery for weapon wounded patients and to bring emergency relief to tens of thousands of displaced people, the International Committee of the Red Cross is calling for an additional CHF 10 million.
