A soldier keeps watch in Nyabibwe, a mining town in South Kivu where a traceability project is underway, October 31, 2012. Eastern Congo has been mired in violence since the 1990s, as battles over ethnicity and resources saw neighbouring countries invade, armed groups spring up and the country's own army turning on the civilian population. A so-called "conflict-free tin initiative" seeking to revive the legal trade in minerals has been set up by UK based industry body ITRI, which is currently the only traceability programme operating in Rwanda, and Congo's more stable Katanga province. Now, with international backers including the U.S. and the Netherlands, a tagging project has been launched for the first time in the Kivus, the two Congolese provinces which have borne the brunt of the violence and have been the source of most of the region's conflict minerals.
