Congo.

Read the Economist’s ( premium link | 2) and Die Zeit’s (Africa’s First World War) current coverage of the genocidal slaughtering occurring in Congo almost unnoticed by the rest of the world. How many deaths in a single instance does it need to wake the West up that something is going on in Africa, Die Zeit asks a German diplomat in Burundi.

His reply – „500 plus, in my experience“. Tragically – that even bodes well for Congo, where 966 people died in a recent massacre.
