Mass graves bear witness to growing violence in DR Congo

In this week's edition: soldiers are accused of war crimes in DR Congo; in Somalia, people are fleeing their homes in search of food and water; and farmers in Ivory Coast are suffering from the cocoa price crisis.


Several Congolese soldiers are arrested for war crimes amid allegations they killed unarmed rebels in the volatile Central Kasai province. This as a number of videos circulate on social media.

Also, the United Nations warns of an unprecedented global food crisis. In Somalia alone, six million people are at risk of starvation.

And in Ivory Coast, thousands of tons of cocoa still haven’t been purchased. It's all due to a falling global price, meaning buyers could face huge losses if they honour their contracts.
