Oxfam latest on sitiation in Eastern Congo, Goma

Oxfam's humanitarian coordinator Tariq Riebl said:

"More than 50,000 people have fled camps and homes since yesterday and are in dire need of shelter, water and food. Families have been split up over night and people are desperately going between sites trying to find loved ones. If fighting intensifies further, there are very few places people can go for safety. With almost 2.5 million people now displaced across eastern Congo, this catastrophe requires a concerted humanitarian and diplomatic response."
