    Fighting in the eastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo has forced at least 8,000 people from their homes this year.

    Both sides in the conflict have been accused of killing civilians as they battle for control of the area.

    Many of the region's refugees end up crammed into makeshift camps, with no idea when, or even if, they will ever be able to go home.

    Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow reports from Shasha, in the eastern part of the country.
