People flee violence from DR Congo to Uganda and RwandaListen /
Hundreds of people from the Democratic Republic of the Congo continue to cross the border into Rwanda and Uganda to flee violence, according to the UN refugee agency (UNHCR).
Fighting continues between Congolese troops and rebels in the eastern part of the DR Congo, where thousands of people are already displaced.
UNHCR spokesperson Adrian Edwards says that new Congolese refugees are continuing to arrive at the Nkamira Transit Centre in Rwanda, which has become congested.
"We had 618 people registered there over the weekend. The population is at 12,549. In Uganda we are seeing steady arrivals at the Nyakabande Transit Centre. Most of these people are coming from sites from internally displaced people in North Kivu itself. Fighting between government troops and renegade fighters in North Kivu since April has left more than 100,000 people newly displaced, including those who have fled to Rwanda and Uganda's Kisoro district."
