Mapping Congo’s conflicts

ImageIf you thought the conflict under way in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo was complex, well this rather wonderful map shows that ain’t the half of it. In all, it includes 30 different armed groups and lists 11 more that aren’t shown, including Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army (I’ve written about his Congo expeditions here).

Extraordinary stuff and I dread to think how much work Christoph Vogel and his team must have done to produce this
