Go to About Section

In the first of a new series of Unreported World, reporter Nima Elbagir and director Edward Watts travel to the Democratic Republic of Congo in the wake of a new campaign of terror by the Lords Resistance Army.

The first television crew to visit the latest massacre sites, they witness the results of terrifying brutality by the much-feared rebel group.

"This opening salvo in the new nine-part Unreported World series, never less than searingly brave and fair, is an eye-opener"
- The Observer

"Elbagir headed to the northeast Congo to investigate the Christmas massacres carried out by the Lord’s Resistance Army rebel group"
- The Independent Sunday
