In photo: Congolese women wait for food ration in DRC, Central Africa


A Congolese woman looks on, while people wait for their ration of food to be handed out at a food distribution on October 25, 2017, in Kasala, in the restive region of Kasai, central Democratic Republic of Congo.

Conflict in the Kasai Provinces between the local militia, Kamwina Nsapu, and Government troops have displaced 1.4 million people since August 2016. As three crop cycles have been missed and displacement continues, severe malnutrition is becoming a present issue. / AFP PHOTO / JOHN WESSELS
