Everyone fled, including the aid workers. For the past two years, thousands of armed men in the Ituri hills have been attacking villages, IDP camps and military positions in the name of the Cooperative for the Development of Congo, Codeco, an armed group structured around a religious sect. They claim to be defending the interests of the Lendu tribe against the army and the Hema tribe. Photo: ALEXIS HUGUET-AFP)
