Worldfocus has been reporting on the crisis in Congo in the country’s volatile eastern region since last fall. In December, we followed one family caught up in the fighting and displaced by the war in “War in DR Congo: The story of Pascal and Vestine.” Since then, the Bumbari family was forced to flee for a third time.
Last month, Michael J. Kavanagh of the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting went back to eastern Congo to find out what happened. Together with Lisa Biagiotti and Taylor Krauss, he produced the story of Pascal and Vestine.
Read Michael’s post on what he saw in Congo’s most remote areas: War still rages on in corners of eastern Congo.
