A few interesting stories:

  • Around a hundred Congolese are apparently stuck in Libya and are having a hard time getting help;
  • Radio Okapi gives us a lesson in what steps must be taken to organize a legal demonstration in the Congo;
  • International Alert published a report on stereotypes, rumors and discrimination in the Great Lakes – they discuss nasty epithets for ethnic communities, including “those with the projecting teeth,” “Banyabungo,” “sorcerers,” as well as the myths of Lirangwe, Nkundiye and Kangere; and
  • A high-ranking Kenyan investigator was murdered while tracking down gold worth around $100 million that had allegedly been smuggled from the Congo.
