FARDC - Congo's Government troops

Soldiers

I've never seen a country so full of soldiers.  Everywhere you turn, every road you walk down, there are armed men.  Rwandan soldiers invited by the Congolese government, Congolese government troops, Nkunda's rebel army (CNDP), Mai Mai militia and Hutu rebels.

I've been shooting for Reuters for the past few days, searching out different factions, trying to get a sense of what is happening and where this conflict is going.  We're all confused.  What we do know is that they were all at once sworn enemies and putting them all together seems like a dangerous proposition.
