Sub-Saharan Africa: Mineral resources and political instability

Year: 2006 Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, Le Monde Diplomatique
Description:
Africa, south of Sahara, is a region with plenty of valuable mineral resources - metals, oil and diamonds. Foreign investments lead the extraction and exploration in many of these places to supply the world markets. This region is also the site of several open conflicts, recent and trying peace and political instability. Foreign armed forces are present in military bases and peace keeping forces.
