Bloodbath in Cango
It's the African equivalent of World War, but who cares

   The Congolese war theatre that infamously earned the sobriquet of theBloodbath in Cango 'African World War', has been the widest inter-state conflict in modern African history. It has been reported that this war had a direct involvement of as many as nine countries and about twenty warring factions. However, it attracted little attention despite the high casualties and huge humanitarian damages. According to estimates, the second assay of the war, spanning from 1998 to 2003 (when the transitional government was formed), caused death to around 3.8 million people. While the tragic equations of the war would be evaluated, questions remain unanswered about African solidarity. The demise of apartheid and Cold War raised hopes for a democratic and stable Africa. But subsequent events have belied expectations. But then, does the world even care?
