  • DR Congo: Crime soars in eastern city of Beni despite state of siege

    Six months ago, DR Congo President Felix Tshisekedi placed North Kivu and Ituri – two provinces in the east of the country – under "a state of siege", effectively imposing martial law in a region that has been rocked by conflict for decades. Today, although the government claims that hundreds of armed militiamen have surrendered, massacres continue and security forces face mounting criticism. In the city of Beni, the justice system has ground to a halt and crime has soared. Our correspondents report.

  • DR Congo's authorities powerless to stop deadly violence in North Kivu

    For the past six years, the city of Beni in DR Congo's North Kivu region has been the scene of almost daily attacks which have killed hundreds of people and displaced hundreds of thousands. A year ago, the Congolese army launched a major offensive to drive out the main perpetrators of the massacres: the ADF, an armed militia originally from Uganda. But far from being defeated, the rebels have intensified their attacks, with deaths reaching a five-year high. Civilians find themselves caught in the middle, with the army and UN peacekeepers unable to protect them. Our correspondents report.
