US Families Ordered to Leave Congo     09/30 06:29

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- The State Department is halting most official U.S. 
government travel to the Democratic Republic of Congo and ordering family 
members of U.S. government personnel to leave the country.

   Violent clashes broke out in Congo amid political turmoil earlier this 
month. Americans have been warned about traveling in the African nation for 
several weeks.

   In an updated travel warning issued Thursday, the State Department says 
continued instability is being reported in Congo. The warning says the 
potential for civil unrest is high in parts of the capital, Kinshasa, and other 
major cities.

   Congo's electoral commission has decided a presidential election scheduled 
for November won't be possible, sparking deadly clashes between security forces 
and demonstrators.

   Critics of President Joseph Kabila say the delayed election is an effort to 
keep Kabila in power.
