Angola - land of mines and awesome moves
October 14, 2009
Angola has the largest number of landmines in the world after Afghanistan. Nearly half of the land in Angola is considered too dangerous to walk on. Hundreds have been killed and perhaps as many as 80.000 injured with a serious disability.
Here you can see some Angolan landmine survivors dancing kuduro, awesome moves! Angola was in civil war from the 1970’s to 2002 and it was one of the largest and longest armed conflicts of the Cold War. Angola has mines made in Russia, United States, South Africa, and Italy among other countries. There are many interests on Angola as it is the 2nd biggest oil producer in Sub-Saharan Africa after Nigeria and it is the 4th biggest diamond source in the world.
