From: An inside story

Fighting in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo has worsened in recent months.

More than 100 armed groups are fighting government and regional troops in a mineral-rich region of eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

Approximately 5.6 million civilians have been forced to flee their homes in the past several years.

The United Nations reiterated its call for a political solution to the crisis after a high-level visit last week.

But regional efforts to end the violence are marred by mutual mistrust and differences.

So, what does the future hold for this region and its people?
