|ICRC Activities in the Congo (Brazzaville): 1994 - 20 April 2000 (International Committee of the Red Cross , 56 p.)|
After contacting all the relevant authorities in the northern and southern parts of the capital, Brazzaville, on 1 August the ICRC and volunteers from the Congolese Red Cross removed five corpses from areas of the city close to the front line.
The ICRC also provided the various armed groups with the equipment necessary for removing bodies from zones where the cease-fire has not yet taken hold.
In parallel, the ICRC is continuing to supply drinking water, provide medical care and install latrines for the population displaced by the fighting. Distributions of relief supplies (soap, blankets, jerricans and cooking pots) and food (rice, beans, oil and salt) for tens of thousands of people affected by recent events will be organized within the next few days.
