UN, NGO and General News Round-Up

The UN is rushing relief to civilians affected by the violence engulfing the far east of the Congo (DRC), as the world body's peacekeeping mission in the vast African nation reports that fighting continues intermittently. The mission, known by its French acronym MONUC, has restricted the movement of UN personnel due to the hostilities in North Kivu province, where clashes have recently escalated between Government forces (FARDC) and the Congress in Defense of the People (CNDP). The fighting has displaced more than 250,000 people, on top of the existing 800,000 forced from their homes by previous hostilities.
