The presence of armed groups in Kinshasa continues to be supported by the armed forces of the Democratic Republic of Congo and the United Nations Security Council, due to their continued presence in Goma and Bangui and their support for a number of terrorist groups such as the Congolese National Liberation Front (FDLR). In the Kivus, this could lead to a military operation to wipe out the armed forces of these groups, as well as other terrorist organisations and other groups.
Members of various armed groups continue to plunder and commit violent crimes against civilians, including murder, kidnapping, armed assault and rape.

One should travel in convoy to and from Gomas and Bukavu and avoid trips that would take place after dark.
