Amazing videographic from The Economist showing the recent history of Congo that explains the current instability of the country.

his is a great short yet informative breakdown of recent conflict in the Congo. this mineral wealth has lead to much conflict over groups attempting to gain control over it ranging from local militias, the government troops, and outside conflicts spilling in (Rwanda rebels for example). These conflicts have had a severe negative effect on the countries population ranging from political issues, to economic lack of growth because even though minerals are being sold, the wealth gained is not spread to better the country, but to retain control on the mines and for making themselves rich.

The natural resources located in Congo have caused a lot of government instability. There are many competing groups of violent people in the small country of Congo. The country of Congo has been through a lot militia struggle and people trying to seize power of the country, not always for the resources but in some cases for ratification of minority group that the majority group does not like. Congo is at the bottom of the spectrum of health and wealth as well.
