Democratic Republic of Congo – Violence in North Kivu (January 6 to 7, 2016)


France condemns the massacre perpetrated during the night of January 6 to 7 in Miriki (North Kivu), which resulted in the death of 15 people.

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

We call on the Congolese authorities and the United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUSCO) to work together to protect the civilian population and restore security in the Kivus.
