Security worsens

October 27, 2008

The day in Goma has been marked by security issues. In the morning, a crowd of civilians armed with stones have tried to attack MONUC headquarters in Goma . Blue helmets uncapable to stop them have tried to break up the crowd with gunfire. According to the first informations, a man riding a motorbike has been killed and some others have been injured. I have recently received information from the field on the deterioration of the situation in Rutshuru, which may have fall tonight in the hands of the CNDP. Nkunda´s forces may try to secure a corridor in order to ensure a provision of fresh supplies. As different voices suggest, the Rwandan army may be behind these attack.

As someone told me today, the population is completely fed up of the situation. Uncertainty and exasperation lie together once again.

No one knows how the situation will unfold in the following hours.
