US Embassy in DR Congo is temporarily closed due to terrorist threat

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - "US citizens in Kinshasa and throughout the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) are strongly encouraged to maintain a heightened level of vigilance and practice good situational awareness. Monitor local media for updates," US Embassy website reported.

The US embassy in the Democratic Republic of the Congo will be closed to the public on November 26 in connection with the data obtained on the impending attacks.

After two years of setbacks, broken promises and delays, the DR Congo on Wednesday kicked off the campaign for a crucial election that could alleviate -- or perhaps worsen the decades-long crisis.

Voters on December 23 will choose a successor to outgoing President Joseph Kabila, who has constitutionally remained in power as caretaker leader even though his second and final elected term ended nearly two years ago.

At stake in the vote is the political future of a mineral-rich country that has never known a peaceful transition of power since independence from Belgium in 1960.
