Pool remains inaccessible

The Pool region south of Brazzaville remains inaccessible, humanitarian sources said. They said tens of thousands of people displaced in December from the Bacongo and Makelekele districts of southern Brazzaville remained in the region, where they were facing “disastrous” food security and health care conditions. The situation was reported to be equally critical for the local population of Pool, where hostilities between government forces and militia groups have prevailed since October 1998.
