Hundreds of people cross the border into the Democratic Republic of Congo from Rwanda, Sunday, May 30, following the evacuation of tens of thousands of people after last week's catastrophic volcanic eruption.
After an estimated 14,000 Goma inhabitants crossed the Rwanda border to flee the eruption last week, some decided to return.
Goma, the capital of North Kivu province, lies on the shores of Lake Kivu in the shadow of Nyiragongo, Africa's most active volcano.
On Saturday, May 23, the stratovolcano spewed rivers of lava that claimed nearly three dozen lives and destroyed the homes of 20,000 people before the eruption stopped.
On Saturday, an estimated 1,200 had left to return to Goma, a Rwanda government official at Rugerero told AFP on condition of anonymity. Military trucks were seen transporting refugees to the border.
