Armed conflict in Democratic Republic of Congo

Armed conflict between M23 rebels and government forces has been ongoing for the past five days with heavy casualties. The fighting is taking place in the North Kivu Province around the city of Goma.

Many countries advise their citizens against any travel to the eastern and northeastern regions, including North and South Kivu Provinces and the Ituri district of Orientale Province and city of Goma due to armed conflict, crime, and lack of personal security and safety.
