This report highlights the appalling extent to which unarmed civilians of the Kivus have continued to be relentlessly deprived of the most basic human rights, and that no authorities exist from whom they can expect protection or redress. Amnesty International is appealing to the Rwandese Government, RCD-Goma authorities, Rwandese and Burundian Hutu armed opposition groups, and the mayi-mayi militias to take immediate measures to prevent further killings of unarmed civilian and other grave human rights abuses.
