Christmas in DRC

 Hundreds of thousands of people have fled M23 rebels, who have captured swathes of territory in recent months.

At least 510,000 people have been displaced in the Rutshuru area of North Kivu province since the outbreak of conflict between the M23 and the Congolese army in March, the United Nations’ humanitarian agency OCHA said. Some 233,000 of those have taken refuge in areas of Nyiragongo north of Goma. Save the Children said on Thursday that it had recorded more than 973 cholera cases in two weeks in Nyiragongo.
