A family member stands by the body of a 17 years-old student allegedly killed last night by a group of Congolese soldiers after looting his house and asking him to carry the belongings into a van after which they shot him in the Katindo neighborhood of Goma, on October 30, 2008. Congolese rebels control the eastern part of the city generating wide spread fear as government forces, residents and tens of thousands of refugees scrambled to leave, with many soldiers out of control.
