WASHINGTON — US President Barack Obama told Congress on Friday that continuing violence and atrocities in Congo makes it necessary to continue for a fifth year a state of emergency and enforcing sanctions against that central African country and people contributing to the continued conflict.

In a letter to the senior members of the House of Representatives and the Senate, Obama said the Congo situation "continues to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the foreign policy of the United States."
