Millions of children at risk in DR Congo violence: UN

Several million children are at risk in DR Congo regions that have been destabilised by armed groups, the UN's children's agency said on Friday.

"The lives and futures of more than three million displaced children are at risk in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) while the world is looking the other way," UNICEF said in a statement.

According to UN figures, 5.2 million people in the DRC have been forced from their homes because of conflict -- "more than in any country except Syria," UNICEF said.

Of these, half have been displaced in the past 12 months, it said.
