    Hundreds of thousands of people - many of them farmers - are returning home in the Democratic Republic of Congo after months in hiding.

    Fighting between the army and rebels from the Kasai region broke out in August 2016, killing more than 3,000 people since and people are worried a fragile peace could end at any time.
