The People's Armed Forces of Congo (French: Forces Armées du Peuple Congolais) is a rebel group based in the Ituri region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and has been active in that region's conflict.
The FAPC was formed in March 2003 by Jérôme Kakwavu, a former member of the Union of Congolese Patriots (UPC). Headquartered in the towns of Aru and Ariwara, the group had approximately 4,000 fighters in early 2005.
Disarmament of the FAPC began on 6 March 2005 with the aim of integrating its members into the national army.
