DRC: Displacement in Beni
Created: 04/12/2019 +


A series of violent attacks against civilians in Beni city and Beni territory in North Kivu province in November has triggered mass displacement across the territory with an unconfirmed number of people fleeing to Beni city. In response to the attacks, residents in Beni began protesting the lack of protection on 22 November. Several organisations have announced the evacuation of staff from Beni until calm is restored. An unconfirmed number of civilians has died in clashes with security forces.6 Civil unrest is ongoing. Limited access due to insecurity in Beni territory and violent protests in Beni city make it difficult to verify information on IDPs.
