UN Concerned Over the Displaced in DRC

Renewed rebel attacks in the DRC leaves more people displaced, women forced into sexual slavery, says UNHCR

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) says that about 3 000 people have been displaced in the Democratic Republic of Congo's north-east amid renewed rebel attacks since the start of the year.

UNHCR spokesperson, Fatoumata Lejeune-Kaba, points out that the agency is very concerned at the recent displacement of several thousand people as a result of renewed attacks by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA).

Lejeune-Kaba states that abducted civilians are often used as porters, while the LRA forces young women into sexual slavery.
