Rwanda and Congo: It’s not what you think

January 26, 2009

In the last week, everything here has changed. Rwanda and Congo, former enemies, are the statecraft version of best buddies. Congo invited Rwandan troops across the border to chase Rwanda’s most hated rebel group, and in return Rwanda arrested one of its alleged erstwhile allies…

Here’s a story I did about the arrest of the region’s most notorious warlord, Laurent Nkunda, for GlobalPost.*

Here’s a story I did with the African bureau chief of the CS Monitor, about what each country may be trying to get out of the deal.

And here’s a story I did about how one of Africa’s smallest countries rendered the world’s biggest peacekeeping force all but irrelevant.

*a very cool new international news site, where a good friend and great journalist, Tom Peter, reports from the Middle East.

    Go Jina go! Some seriously well-written straight news stories…I never get this excited about non-narrative writing:-)
