Congo (DR) conflict

Updated: Mon, 9 Dec 2013

Introduction

Democratic Republic of Congo's five-year war officially ended in 2003, but the country is still regularly listed as the site of one of the world's worst humanitarian crises. 

Insecurity continues in the remote, resource-rich provinces near the eastern border, and the world's largest peacekeeping mission – a U.N. force of nearly 20,000 soldiers – struggles to prevent violence and protect the population of 67.7 million.

Despite Congo's deposits of gold, diamonds and minerals, millions of its people suffer from a lethal combination of disease and hunger - some of it caused by ongoing conflict and displacement.
