According to recent reports, China says five of its citizens have been kidnapped from a mining operation in eastern Congo.  It called on all Chinese citizens to leave South Kivu and the neighboring provinces of North Kivu and Ituri, saying the security situation in the area was “extremely complex and grim”.

However, there are no certain specifics about the acclaimed ‘victims’ and who they worked for or who was suspected of taking them. Despite the danger, Chinese businesses have moved into Congo and other unstable African states in a quest for rare minerals and other natural resources.
