Kachiri village of Democratic Republic of Congo in the eastern district of Masisis is a shadow of what it used to be.

When rebels and government forces began to fight here, residents fled to a camp. After three years, they returned, to find their land had gone.

It now belongs to a powerful member of a local militia who says he bought it legally.

Al Jazeera’s Peter Greste reports Masis.
