Democratic Republic of Congo – Attack in Oicha (July 4, 2016)


France condemns the attack which killed 9 people on July 4 in the town of Oicha in Beni territory in North Kivu, which has already been hard hit by terrorism.

We extend our condolences to the victims’ families. The perpetrators of this attack must be brought to justice.

Resolute and coordinated action by the Congolese army and MONUSCO is urgently needed in order to protect the civilian population and restore security in the provinces bordering Lake Kivu.
