Picture of the day: East Congo in trouble

east congo

Thousands of people in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo have been fleeing a new outburst of fighting between government troops and rebel forces. (Full)

[Ed: This picture is taken now, but could have been taken in 1994 when we saw the influx of Rwandese refugees into East Congo. Or in 1996-7 when those refugees fled into the jungle, some of them ending up thousands of miles further away... This short story was written during that time. I hope we are not going back into a situation we will have 2-3 million refugees]
