7 Million People in the Democratic Republic of the Congo Are Now Displaced

HeadlineNov 10, 2023

In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, a record nearly 7 million people have been displaced due to ongoing conflict and violence. That’s according to the International Organization for Migration, which warns it’s one of the largest internal displacement and humanitarian crises in the world. The Congo’s eastern region has been the worst hit due to fighting between dozens of armed groups. Local communities have led protests against U.N. peacekeepers, saying they’ve failed to prevent escalating violence. Just last month, at least eight U.N. peacekeepers in eastern Congo were suspended over allegations of sexual assault.
