According to the UN, more than 800,000 people have been displaced in North and South Kivu provinces as a result of military operations against the Rwandan rebel group Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) and local militia allies since January 2009. A split within the National Congress for the PeopleÕs Defense (CNDP) rebel group, formerly led by Laurent Nkunda, and a joint Rwandan-Congolese military offensive against the FDLR have further blurred the lines between the warring parties in Eastern DRC.
