La situation humanitaire reste « alarmante » ŕ Walungu pendant que les Fardc et la Monuc préparent un assaut Kinshasa, 11/13/2004 / Politics The humanitarian situation becomes increasingly \" alarming \" in the territory of Walungu in the East of the DRC, the spokesman of the UN mission DR Congo (MONUC), Mamadou Bah indicated The humanitarian situation becomes increasingly \" alarming \" in the territory of Walungu, in the eastern part of the democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), the UN spokesman, Mamadou Bah indicated Friday. Mentioning the office of the coordination of the UN for the humanitarian Businesses, Mr. Bah indicated that \" the population (of Walungu) stop cultivating, following the systematic looting of their harvests by various groups \" operating in the area, specifying that the population would be dealing with \" serious malnutrition problems\". The attacks of villages in this region are many, violations of human rights “ affecting also the civilians, Mr. Bah reported. This territory \" is practically inaccessible for the humanitarian intervening parties of the fact of the insecurity \" caused by the armed groups operating in this part of the DRC, he added. The mountains of the Congolese provinces of the North and the South-Kivu, bordering with Rwanda, shelter since ten years various armed bands in particular the Rwandan armed forces (Far), the democratic Forces for the liberation of Rwanda (FDLR), Interahamwe Rwandan militiamen accused to be in charge of the 1994 genocide which, according to the UN, caused 800.000 cases of casualties. \" The Rasta group, dissident of the FDLR, (…) perpetrates essentially crimes, lootings, rapes \" in the zone, according to the spokesman of the Monuc who mentions some local sources. Mr. Bah mentioned also a group of Hutu Rwandan militiamen which, according to information delivered to the Monuc by the \" local \" sources, were introduced by the Rwandan patriotic army (APR) before its refold from the Congolese \" territory, in October 2002. It happens just at the time when the FARDC supported by the MONUC prepare to launch an attack against these forces known as negative to the peace in DRC. But the pacification forces would have to choose between the return of the peace in Congo and the humanitarian aid to the inhabitants of Walungu. Last edited: 5/7/2006 1:16:20 AMRelated Articles
