Congo terror threat: U.S. warns of “credible” terrorist threat in Democratic Republic of Congo

The US Embassy in the DRC announced over the weekend that it had received “credible and specific” information concerning a terrorist threat against U.S. facilities in the capital Kinshasa. The announcement did not provide details on the source of the threat, whether connected to ongoing rebel activities by the Islamist ADF militia thousands of kilometers away in the Easternmost provinces or to another group. The country continues to suffer from severe political uncertainty as continually postponed elections must eventually occur and see some kind of transition in a country that has not seen a peaceful transition of power since decolonization in 1960.
