Democratic Republic of Congo: Rwandese-controlled east: devastating human toll

As part of Amnesty International’s response to the deterioration of the human rights situation in the Kivus, its delegates visited the region in late 2000 to gather information from survivors, witnesses and other individuals or organizations with an interest in human rights. The information collected by Amnesty International’s delegates confirmed that systematic and widespread human rights abuses by the many different armed forces were continuing. More than a million people have been forced to flee from the Kivu region alone.
