The UNÂ Security Council has been warned that the unrest in DR Congo is at ‘extreme risk’ of developing into widespread violence, the BBC reports. Violent protests broke out there last month, over the postponement of presidential elections. The UN has sent a peacekeeping force to DRC in response, but the UN’s envoy to the country warns that this force may be overwhelmed if the current unrest escalates.
Please continue to pray with us that Jesus, the Prince of Peace, will bring calm to the whole nation. And please pray in particular for safety for our friends and partners in Kinshasa and Goma, which have been especially affected by the violence.
