Oxfam Halts Operations in DRC

Oxfam International suspends operations in the northwest Democratic Republic of Congo, because of insecurity

The British charity, Oxfam International, says it has suspended operations at Mbandaka, a key town in the northwest Democratic Republic of Congo, because of insecurity.

Oxfam’s director in the DR Congo, Roland Van Hauwermeiren, “Because of the insecurity that prevailed at Mbandaka we have suspended our activities until the situation stabilises in the region.”

Van Hauwermeiren says the organisation staff ‘stayed lying on the ground for two days’ during clashes early this month between Enyele tribal insurgents, who tried to seize Mbandaka airport, and the DR Congo army and United Nations troops.
