Aid arrives in Uganda for people fleeing fighting in the DRC with nothing but their lives.

    International food aid has begun arriving in Uganda for refugees who have been forced from their homes by fighting in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).

    Aid workers are struggling to reach tens of thousands of others trapped in areas where militias have been attacking villages.

    Fighting in the last three weeks has killed hundreds of people and left hundreds of thousands displaced.
