The girl recovered after a week. This did not convince the western doctors who maintained their opposition. On the basis of this success the team of Zairean doctors led by doctor M. Massamba, continued to transfuse t...

Several tens of thousands of displaced people have been living in precarious conditions in the region of Ituri, in the northeast Democratic Republic of Congo, for the last two weeks. Fighting broke out between the Congolese armed forces and the militia group, Force de Résistance Patriotique de Ituri (FRPI) on August 22, a battle for control over the southern zones of Ituri.
