Photos of the Day: Dec. 3, 2012

A Congolese FARDC government soldier looks out of the window of the clubhouse of the base, after they arrived in Goma, eastern Congo Monday Dec. 3, 2012. Several hundred Congo army soldiers returned to the key eastern city of Goma, as rebels remained poised nearby and a possible fight loomed for the city of 1 million. About 700 government army troops reentered Goma Monday in trucks which arrived at Katindo barracks. Crowds gathered to cheer and sing and some women rushed forward to kiss the troops.
