The resurgence of violence in Democratic Republic of Congo's Ituri province has caused an increasing number of refugees to flee to neighboring country Uganda and take on a life in exile since the start of June.

Because of the renewed clashes between opposing Hema and Lendu groups in north-eastern parts of the DRC, Congolese refugees are now across the border into Uganda at a rate of around 310 a day, more than double the rate of refugee arrivals in May which stood at 145 per day.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees says that more than 7,000 people have so far arrived in Uganda's southwestern district of Hoima.!language=1
