The U.S. Department of State, subsequent to the reporting of the results of the presidential election in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, has issued a travel alert.

The Department of State advises that since U.S. Embassy employees are currently restricted from travel outside of Kinshasa’s Gombe neighborhood, their ability to provide emergency assistance to U.S. citizens may be compromised. The department will review the travel restrictions on December 8, but in the meantime advises that all non-essential travel to the Democratic Republic of the Congo should be suspended.

A number of international carriers have cancelled flights to and from Kinshasa on December 6 and 7.
