Congo Update

CRS has two international staff and three national staff in Goma, and they are all fine; Goma city remains relatively calm.

There have been no breakthroughs in the U.N.-brokered peace talks between the Congolese government and rebel forces that opened Monday in Nairobi, Kenya.

Skirmishes and troop movements and population displacement continues in Rutshuru territory north of Goma; Masisi territory west of Goma remains relatively calm.

The CRS/Caritas team completed the non-food item kit registration in Ngungu (southern Masisi territory). The kits are expected to arrive in Goma this Sunday and distribution may begin by late next week.
