UN struggles to send aid to DRC civilians

As fighting continues between Congolese soldiers and rebels, aid agencies hit difficulties reaching thousands in need.

    In the Democratic Republic of Congo, the UN has announced plans to send more peacekeepers to the southern province of Katanga. Civilians there have been caught up in fighting between Congolese soldiers and rebels.

    Distributing food to hundreds of thousands of people affected is a challenge for aid agencies.
