The Gun Village
by Veronique de Viguerie
by Spencer Platt


This month Spencer Platt reports on an unending war in the Congo. Platt notices the absence of the world's media despite the long-drawn-out conflict and many casualties. In Israel, Rafael Ben-Ari covers the first outbreak of bird flu in that country and learns how to be prepared. Veronique de Viguerie reports from a village in Pakistan where everyone is involved in the fabrication of guns and ammunition. And from Kathmandu, Brian Sokol shares his harrowing experiences on the front lines of Nepal's deadly pro-democracy protests.
