Is Ituri on the Road to Stability? An Update on the Current Security Situation in the District

"This situation report aims to provide a snapshot of the current situation in the Ituri district in the north-eastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). For the past six years this area has been torn apart by violent conflict involving six main militia groups. These groups have organised themselves along ethnic lines, pitting the two main ethnic groups of the region – Hema and Lendu – against one another in a regional war which is estimated to have killed at least 50,000 people."
