Living with violence in the DR Congo - BBC News
Since last October, the Democratic Republic of Congo’s Kasai region has been wracked by violence, leading to the deaths of many civilians.
These fatalities are the result of clashes between the army and a government-backed militia known as the Bana Mura, and a rebel group called Kamuina Nsapu.
Many villages have been burned down and it is estimated that more than a million people have been displaced in the region in the past year.
Photographer John Wessels travelled to the region and met those who have been caught up in the fighting.
