An estimated 20,000 persons displaced by fighting between government forces and militia in the area had already arrived in the port city of Pointe-Noire, humanitarian sources said. They said insecurity was still prevalent in Pointe-Noire and blackouts were frequent. International oil companies remained operational in the city, the sources added.
