- 587.26 KB
Last May, Bunia, capital of the Ituri region in northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), was the scene of extreme violence. Conflict has persisted in this region since 1998, however since 2001 it has reached a new level of intensity. Several thousand people have been killed and hundreds of thousands more have fled on several occasions. Neither civilians nor aid workers have been spared these abuses, as shown by the April 2001 killings of six members of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in the vicinity of Bunia.
