    Ms Tabena is back with her only son after long years apart. He was one of 10 children rescued from different armies and armed groups whom the ICRC was able to return to their village in South Kivu province. His mother speaks of her joy at being reunited with her son, but also of her fears for the future. After over 20 years of war and violence, there are few opportunities for young people in country areas of the DRC's eastern region. Some youngsters are press-ganged into armies and armed groups. Others volunteer, seduced by false promises of fame and fortune. The ICRC is helping them return to civilian life by getting in touch with their families, and going home if this is what they want.

SOUNDBITE (French) Emanuel Kaba, polling station official: "They all want to be inside the voting station but the room is not big enough to fit everyone in." 11. Mid of people walking towards polling station STORYLINE: Polls have opened in the Democratic Republic of Congo for presidential and legislative elections, after a violent run-up and delays. Opposition leaders and country experts had urged the government to delay the vote due to massive logistical problems - including the late delivery of voting materials - but the election proceeded anyway on Monday. The vote is the second since the end of Congo's last war and the first to be organised by the government instead of the international community. There were delays at every step in the preparation and, as of Sunday, 12 of the 156 voting districts had not yet received ballots. At polling stations that opened on time, lines were small - possibly reflecting fear among voters. The massive nation pummelled by war for an election that could further consolidate the country's peace or drag Congo back into conflict. Over the weekend, police lobbed tear gas at protesters. The African country could be plunged into violence again if it is unable to agree on the results of the presidential and legislative election. Eleven candidates are vying for president. More than 18-thousand candidates are competing for the 500 seats in parliament. Posters of candidates featured their number on the ballot, which is as thick as a weekend supplement in a major newspaper. A third of Congolese adults can't read - a rate that is even higher among women - and many were showing up with slips of paper containing the number of their candidate. Errors were quickly discovered on the ballot, with candidate 30 missing altogether. Mboyo Ilombe, candidate 1151, appeared in the wrong spot - between 438 and 439.
