report Irish Red Cross

The ongoing murder, rape and looting of property in war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo is a cause for grave concern, the Irish Red Cross said today.

"Women, children, older people and others who are not involved in the conflict continue to suffer. Reports locally indicate rape, looting and killing in the greater Goma region continues," said Noel Wardick, Head of the International Dept of the Irish Red Cross.

Tens of thousands of civilians have had to flee further north.
