N'Bahunde believes her sons, aged 20 and 23, may have been killed last week when rebels captured Kiwanja and dozens of young males of fighting age were found shot dead in their homes. Weeks of violence have forced more than 250,000 people from homes or ramshackle camps where they had taken shelter, bringing to over 1 million the number of internal refugees from years of fighting in Democratic Republic of Congo's North Kivu province.

The coffin of eight-month old Alexandrine Kabitsebangumi, who died from cholera, is lowered into a grave in a banana grove at Kibati, north of Goma in eastern Congo, November 12, 2008. Recent fighting has contributed to a heightened risk of cholera, with poor sanitation, lack of clean water, the constant movement of people into squalid and crowded camps.

A mother breastfeeds her two malnourished infants at a catholic mission feeding center in rebel-held Rutshuru, 70kms (50 miles) north of Goma in eastern Congo, November 13, 2008. Malnutrition rates in Rutshuru, which has seen weeks of fighting between government soldiers and dissident Tutsi general Laurent Nkunda's rebels, are almost double emergency thresholds and aid workers are battling insecurity to deliver rations. The latest wave of fighting has worsened a humanitarian disaster that began in the 1990s. REUTERS/Finbarr O'Reilly (DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO)

A dead Congolese government soldier lies on the road at the front line near Kibati, north of Goma in eastern Congo, November 12, 2008. Two soldiers, both shot through the head, were killed in a sharp exchange of artillery, mortar, rocket and machine gun fire late on Tuesday a few kilometres from a refugee camp at Kibati sheltering 80,000 civilians displaced by violence. This is the tense front line in the simmering war in Democratic Republic of Congo's North Kivu province, where Tutsi rebels and government troops face each other just 200 metres apart from positions in the verdant bush and fields.
