The Rape Of A Nation

John le Carre is a photojournalist with VII and provides the following introduction for his video slideshow, "The Rape of a Nation."  
Congo is a continuing human tragedy. It is fourteen hundred and fifty tragedies every day. It is more than that if you include the orphaned, the bereaved, the widowed, and all the ripples of truncated lives that spread from a single death. It is you and me and our children and our parents, if we had had the bad luck to be born into the world these photos portray.
