BUMBA, DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO MARCH 25: An unidentified man has just bought a dead monkey at an animal market on March 25, 2006 outside Bumba, Congo, DRC. Monkeys are a popular food for Congolese but its quite expensive. Bumba is an important port between Kisangani and Kinshasa, a distance of about 1750 kilometers. 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).
