According to the United Nations migration agency, a record 6.9 million Congolese people have been displaced within the country of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Most of those displaced are in the eastern provinces where fighting has been ongoing for decades.

We also hear the reporting of Congolese journalist Justin Kabumba, who writes for the Associated Press and France 24 from the eastern provincial capital of Goma.
