Al Jazeera Video: N’Zerekore, Guinea – “Ethnic Violence Threatens Guinea Mining”
Violence that has left 50 people dead over past week puts strain on major international commodity contracts.
The UN has commended Guinea’s government for trying to restore calm in the west African nation. More than 50 people have been killed in fighting between tribes over the last week.
Guinea is the world’s biggest exporter of Bauxite, the main source of Aluminium. But the increase in tensions could threaten multi-million dollar contracts with a number of international mining companies.
