Caption Only: Medical aid begins arriving in Republic of Congo

An elderly woman in the Republic of Congo takes refuge in the relative safety of a church compound in Nganga Lingolo, on the outskirts of Brazzaville. Medical and military aid began arriving Tuesday in the African nation torn apart internally by four months of civil war. Brazzaville hospitals have been overrun by people sickened or wounded during the hostilities.
