• 25 Most Dangerous Places To Visit As A Tourist

    While some places are on this list due to armed conflicts and violence, other places are on the list thanks to physical or biological calamities. Regardless of the reasons, the one thing all of these places have in common is that most western governments do not advise travel to them unless it is absolutely necessary. These are the 25 most dangerous places to visit as a tourist. Also, before we continue, just remember, being on this list doesn't necessarily mean the entire country is bad to visit (although it can). Just make sure to check on regional travel warnings.

    WFP provides food for survivors of sexual violence who are recovering in Panzi Hospital in Bukavu, in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Rape is widespread in DRC, particularly in the war-torn east of the country. WFP is also working to reduce the risk of sexual violence against women with a project for the manufacture of fuel briquettes in Goma. It means that women living in camps don't have to go out looking for firewood in the bush where they are liable to be attacked.

Natural Sound Brazzaville's mayor and mediator, Bernard Kolelas, says the fighting factions in the Republic of Congo agreed to extend a 72 hour truce for a further seven days. The ceasefire was originally due to finish at midnight on Friday and French troops continued their withdrawal from the capital as the initial deadline approached. Among those leaving Brazzaville on Friday were 140 refugees from Mauritius and Mali, who had been camping around the airport for around five weeks. French troops have been busy at Brazzaville's Maya Maya airport as Friday's scheduled end to the 72 hour ceasefire drew closer. French soldiers have been evacuating foreign nationals since fighting crossed the River Congo from the neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo, formerly Zaire. Fighting broke out on June 5 between forces loyal to the Republic of Congo's President Pascal Lissouba and those of his predecessor, former military leader Denis Sassou Nguesso. Having evacuated foreign nationals wishing to leave the country, French troops turned their attention to equipment on Friday, packing A-P-Cs and other military hardware. Around 450 French troops are still left in the Republic of Congo - they were expected to be withdrawn on Sunday before Friday's announcement of the extension to the ceasefire. Flying to safety on Friday were 140 refugees from Mauritius and Mali who boarded an Air Daddia plane, protected by French troops. The situation in Brazzaville has remained tense as Congolese government soldiers and Denis Sassou Nguesso's Cobra fighters prepared to resume fighting at the end of the ceasefire.

Six Chinese workers also died in the blasts, again raising concerns about the safety of Chinese workers abroad. On Sunday, a series of large explosions rocked Brazzaville, the capital of the Republic of Congo in Africa. A government spokesperson said a fire caused by an electrical short circuit reached a weapons depot in one of several military camps situated in the city. Hundreds of people were reportedly killed by the blasts, including six Chinese workers from the Beijing Construction Engineering Group. Many more were injured or remained trapped under the debris. A Congolese official, who asked to remain anonymous, said the government had promised to move all munitions depots outside the city after a similar explosion three years ago. On Sunday evening, the government again said all arms depots would be moved out of the capital. The incident once more triggered public criticism of the Chinese regime's disregard for Chinese workers' safety. [Zhang Jianzhong, Founder of Anti-corruption Volunteers Website]: "The security of overseas Chinese workers is an imminent issue. Chinese interest groups regard workers as tools for profit. When workers die or get injured, their compensation is far below the international standard." Also of public concern is the Chinese Communist Party's assistance to the authoritarian military government in the Congo. [Bian Hexiang, Chairman, Coalition of Guards for American Values]: "The CCP likes to be friends with authoritarian governments, including military governments. It seeks only to extend its autocratic rule. If alone in the world, it cannot maintain its authoritarian rule, so it assists lingering dictators in return for mutual support." Small explosions continued in Brazzaville on Monday, as rescue workers attempted to contain a second fire that threatened another local arms depot.
