I don't remember I've seen the following article on the website. It was published in the 2015 September issue of the National Geographic magazine I read in the afternoon.

I follow the situation very carefully in Central Africa, but I did not realize the magnitude of the challenge that APN was facing in Garamba, Chinko and Zakouma. This article was devastating for me. I really admire the bravery of APN.

 

Cutting the traffic is clearly the key to make peace in this remote corner of Africa...

This grim article was eye-opening.

 

I'm glad that you found and posted it.

 

What sobering examples are given, including the photographs.
