Kinshasa/Brussels, 8 December 2000 — Due to serious unrest taking place in the town of Pweto, Katanga province, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), the civilian population is being exposed to major risks, posed both by the conflict itself and by the major cholera epidemic rampant in the region. Over recent days, the fighting has caused thousands of people to flee toward Zambia, and rendered the town inaccessible to the Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) team.
