Collecting Bullets

A Congolese Revolutionary Army fighter collects bullets from the floor at a military barracks in Goma on Nov. 23, abandoned by fleeing government soldiers. Rebels advanced in eastern Congo on Friday after repelling a counter-attack by government forces, trying to strengthen their grip before a summit on defusing the crisis in a region long plagued by ethnic and political conflict.
