DR Congo's displaced suffer amid conflict

More than one million people have been forced to flee their homes since fighting began last year.

    In the Democratic Republic of Congo, government forces backed by UN soldiers are advancing on M23 rebels.

    Nearly 100 people have been killed in fighting near the city of Goma over the last two weeks.

    The conflict has displaced more than a million people since it began in May last year as they flee destruction and violence.
