Wooden bikes take off in DRC city

    People in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo have suffered decades of conflict.

    More than 90 percent live on less than two dollars a day and few can afford cars.

    But people in the city of Goma are getting to grips with a different way of getting around town.
