COMMUNIQUE DE PRESSE – Les violences interethniques qui ravagent depuis le mois de décembre la Province de l’Ituri, au nord-est de la République démocratique du Congo (RDC) ont généré d’importants mouvements de population à l’intérieur de la Province ainsi que vers l’Ouganda voisin. L’UNICEF est très préoccupé par la situation des plus de 46.000 enfants qui sont en fuite à cause des violences.
Juba, 15 February 2018 – WHO and partners are responding to an influx of more than 15 000 returnees from Uganda and internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Bungu, Kuli-Papa, Kagwada and Katigiri Counties, former Central Equatoria State South Sudan, since the influx was reported in late January 2018. The influx is stretching the existing humanitarian resources and primary health care services. Since clashes in mid-2016, humanitarian needs in the area have remained high.

What is added by this report?
The humanitarian situation for the Rohingya population in Rakhine state remains highly concerning. Civilians face restricted movement and people are regularly denied access to fields, coastal waters, rivers and markets. This leads to food shortages and risk of starvation. Livestock theft is also reported which further aggravates food insecurity.
