|ICRC Activities in the Congo (Brazzaville): 1994 - 20 April 2000 (International Committee of the Red Cross , 56 p.)|
In 1996, the situation in Congo was generally calm, but the complexity of the political situation and the constant presence in the capital of armed militiamen from all parties were a source of latent tension throughout the year.
The ICRC continued its activities to spread knowledge of humanitarian law and support the National Society and, in cooperation with the Federation and the Congolese Red Cross, distributed food and other aid to several hundred people suspected of being linked in some way with Rwanda, who had been forced to flee Kinshasa and had sought refuge in Brazzaville.
In 1996 the ICRC:
- organized a humanitarian law seminar for officers from all over the country in charge of instructing troops in the humanitarian rules.
