22-08-2003 06:56My sister Charlotte was one of more than 300,000 civilians killed in Burundi's vicious civil war. Her death was exceptional only for the fact that it was noticed by the international media (ie. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/1093135.stm). By and large, the world ignores Burundi.

Héctor Ramírez, a journalist, died of a heart attack while escaping from an aggressive mob, and other journalists narrowly escaped lynching. This very dangerous development may be the prelude to a coup.
