    It is an essential part of most mobile gadgets sold around the world and demand for cobalt is soaring. But the process of extracting the mineral from the earth comes at a huge human cost. A Sky News investigation has found children as young as four working in dangerous and squalid conditions in Cobalt mines in the Democratic Republic of the Congo for as little as 8p a day. Sky's special correspondent Alex Crawford reports.

    http://www.euronews.net/ For over a decade, the Democratic Republic of Congo had been ravaged by what many refer to as Africa's first world war. The fighting was concentrated in the east, where entire rural communities were either massacred or became refugees. After years of being kept alive by international aid many are finally returning to what were once their homes and farms. Innovative agricultural methods may hold the key to ending DR Congo's ongoing cycle of poverty.

Visit http://www.congoweek.org to break the silence about the six million Congolese killed for the scramble of their country's mineral wealth. Monday, August 10, 2009 Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lost her cool Monday after a Congolese student, speaking through a translator, asked her what "Mr. Clinton" thought about a Chinese trade deal with the Democratic Republic of the Congo. "You want me to tell you what my husband thinks?" Clinton replied, clearly irked by the thought of being her husband Bill's spokeswoman. "My husband is not secretary of state, I am," she replied. "If you want my opinion I will tell you my opinion. I am not going to be channeling my husband." The only problem? Apparently the translator made a mistake and the student had wanted to know what President Obama thought of the deal. A State Department official tells ABC News the student went up to Clinton after the event and told her he was misquoted. No immediate word yet how Clinton responded. Regardless of the error, the notion of Secretary Clinton's deference to her husband clearly touched a nerve with America's top diplomat. Just a week ago the former President stole his wife's thunder when he appeared in North Korea to rescue two American journalists detained there. His trip came just as Secretary Clinton embarked on a swing through Africa she hoped would shine light on the plight of the continent. Still, imagine what the students thought when her response was translated back and they heard Clinton call President Obama her husband. Source ABC News.

2009 Sundance Film Festival World Premiere REPORTER is a feature documentary about Nicholas Kristof, the two-time Pulitzer Prize winning columnist for The New York Times, who almost single-handedly put the crisis in Darfur on the world map. Now he wants to do the same for Congo, a humanitarian disaster zone where 5.4 million have died in the last decade as a result of the unceasing warfare over territory, resources and tribal hatred. But Nick knows that statistics deaden his readers' interest and compassion. So to get the world to care, he goes in search of individuals whose stories will reflect the country's desperate crisis and mobilize readers worldwide. He journeys through ravaged villages and displacement camps, and makes a harrowing visit to Congo's reigning rebel warlord, General Nkunda, at his jungle hideout.

GUNS FOR HIRE -- CONGO DRC is my second documentary about ex-military personel who work for PMCs, private military companies. Reporter Sam Kiley followed Conrad Thorpe who is an ex British Special Forces colonel. He got hired by the Congolese government to train anti-poaching units in the Virunga National Park. They are known as ICCN rangers (Institue Congolais pour la Conservation de la Nature). After a decade of civil war this training is a desperate attempt to protect Congo's remaining endangered wildlife. Production Notes: The production of this film offered me the first opportunity to witness the aftermath of the various civil wars in the Eastern part of Congo DRC. At first sight, the natural beauty of the vast wilderness is breathtaking. But, at the same time, I was shocked by the extreme poverty of the local population. Most of them were (and still are) internally displaced people. These impoverished people suffered horribly during the civil war which took place after the disintegration of President Mobutu's regime in 1997. These civilians live in constant fear of pillaging militias. Some of the worst bandits are the Interahamway, the former Hutu mass murderers from Rwandan who escaped into the Eastern Congo after the 1994 genocide against the Tutsis. They continue to terrorise the local population and they are also plundering the resources of Virunga National Park. They are extremely destructive poachers and will be in direct conflict with the ICCN rangers. The so called 'Government Army' in Eastern Congo is also a constant worry. Most of these soldiers were members of former militias. They have no discipline and always earn their living with illegal activities. They control Gold and Coltan mining operations, are involved in logging and charcoal production and, of course, they participate in poaching. The biggest headache of Conrad's park rangers is their fight against the illegal activities of the government troops. The ranger's efforts are greatly handicapped because they lack jurisdiction over the Army. So the Army can freely pursue criminal activities with no fear of consequence. It is also an illusion to believe that the government, headquartered in Kinshasa, will ever have the clout and influence to solve any of these conflicts. They are over 2000 km away and have absolutely no control of the activities in Eastern Congo. At the end of 2008 the political and economic situation remains very volatile. The outbreak of a new regional conflict between the Tutsi Rebel leader Laurent Nkunda and various government troops and militias is a disaster. http://www.vonplantaproductions.com/ Date: February 2006 Location: Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) Distributor: Sky One (22 May 2006) -- 46 min.

Melanie tenía solo trece años cuando fue secuestrada por el LRA. Estuvo cautiva durante cerca de cinco años. Su historia es demasiado común. La milicia abusa de chicas jóvenes capturándolas. Muchas se convierten en esclavas sexuales. Decenas de vidas han quedado despedazadas por las atrocidades del LRA.La hermana Angelique se ha convertido en la esperanza de las mujeres que abandonaron sus casas y llegaron a la pequeña ciudad de Dungu sin nada. La religiosa ha hecho, con escasos recursos, todo lo que estaba en su mano. En los últimos diez años miles de mujeres desplazadas se han beneficiado de sus talleres.

http://www.euronews.net/ For over a decade, the Democratic Republic of Congo had been ravaged by what many refer to as Africa's first world war. The fighting was concentrated in the east, where entire rural communities were either massacred or became refugees. After years of being kept alive by international aid many are finally returning to what were once their homes and farms. Innovative agricultural methods may hold the key to ending DR Congo's ongoing cycle of poverty.
