From the Daily Mail:

“Fresh fighting between rebels in the Republic of Congo and government forces has displaced an estimated 13,000 people, the United Nations refugee agency said Friday.

The violence has been concentrated in the country’s southeast, where members of the Ninja Nsiloulou militia have battled the army, according to UNHCR.

“We are afraid some 13,000 displaced people soon may not have enough to eat,” UNHCR spokesman William Spindler told reporters in Geneva.”
