MALUKU, DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO APRIL 22: An unidentified man cooks a meal as the sun sets on April 22, 2006 in the port in Maluku, Congo, DRC. They transport trees tied together as a boat to sell in Kinshasa. They have now run out of money and petrol, and waiting to continue their trip. The port is a small port about 50 kilometers from the capital Kinshasa. Many villagers come here to trade goods. The Congo River is a lifeline for millions of people, who depend on it for transport and trade. Congo is planning to hold general elections by July 2006, the first democratic elections in forty years..(Photo by Per-Anders Pettersson/Getty Images)...
