A prisoner stands in an alley of the Bunia Prison March 30, 2006 in Bunia, Congo. The prison, which houses mainly former FARDC (Forces Armees de la Republique Democratique du Congo) soldiers, the national army of the Democratic Republic of Congo, who have either mutinied or joined various militias, is overcrowded with poor living conditions. Africa has some of the worst prison facilities in the world, with overcrowding, prisoner abuse and malnutrition a growing problem, according to reports.
