Sparked by disputed parliamentary elections, the conflict lasted until the government and the “Ninja” rebels, the armed wing of the National Resistance Council (Conseil national de résistance, CNR) which originated from among the Lari ethnic group, signed a ceasefire agreement in 2003.

Profile of Internal Displacement: Republic of Congo (Brazzaville)

Civil conflict hit the Republic of Congo intermittently in the decade after 1992, the year of the first democratic elections. Most of the around 800,000 people who were displaced at the peak of the fighting in 1998 had either returned or settled down in their areas of displacement when hostilities broke out again in March 2002. The renewed fighting sent between 100,000 and 150,000 people, mainly Lari from the hard-hit Pool region surrounding the capital Brazzaville, fleeing from their homes.

Until March 2002, a tenuous peace was holding in the country, and the majority of the estimated 800,000 persons previously displaced by conflict had returned home.
