Massacre, shmassacre. You tell this story to a random African, he shrugs his shoulders. From what I’ve heard, the entire continent is one brutal place.
Actually, an ongoing story that you should report on is the reversed apartheid in South Africa. Lots of violence against whites, no support from the government — actually, the government hassles them aswell. A South African guy I know said “When Nelson Mandela dies, the country explodes”. Maybe a few people still think of SA as a “rainbow nation”, but even while most people acknowledge there’s some tensions, I think the level of violence and insecurity is generally underestimated.
