A woman displaced in October 2008 by fighting between forces of rebel Tutsi General Laurent Nkunda and the Congolese government took refuge in a church and adjacent school in the Goma neighborhood of Musawato, where she plays with one of her children. A quarter of a million people have been newly displaced by fighting in the eastern Congo, where some 5.4 million have died since 1998 from war-related violence, hunger and disease.
