MILELE, DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO JUNE 25: Unidentified children watch fish being smoked as the sun goes down on June 25, 2006 outside Milele, Congo, DRC. Milele is a small fishing village along the river with a few hundred inhabitants. These people are some of the most isolated people in DRC. 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. The Congolese and the international community are hoping that Congo will finally have piece and the country will be rebuilt..(Photo by Per-Anders Pettersson/Getty Images)..
