Southern Africa’s food crisis in numbers
28 January 2016 (IRIN ), Southern Africa is facing the threat of extensive crop failures this year as a result of record low rainfall in a region in which 29 million people already don't have reliable access to enough affordable and nutritious food.

Can the UN patch things up in Congo?
15 January 2016 (IRIN ), A year ago, the Congolese army and MONUSCO, the UN peacekeeping force in the Democratic Republic of Congo, were supposed to launch joint operations to take on Rwandan Hutu rebels. Everything was planned down to the last detail, before a major difference of opinion stopped the effort in its tracks.

Congo’s forgotten war: The militia of Mambasa
8 January 2016 (IRIN ), In spite of the death more than a year ago of key commander Paul Sadala, known as “Morgan”, his Simba militia continue to wreak havoc in Mambasa, a vast territory of more than 35,000 square kilometres in Ituri Province, in northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

Grappling with mental health challenges in Congo
5 January 2016 (IRIN ), Years of conflict in the northeastern Congolese province of North Kivu has created a host of mental health challenges that the region is ill-equipped to deal with. Fledgling organisations try their best to fill the gap, but without systemic change, there is scant hope of progress. And who will pay for that?

As body count mounts, Burundi talks ever more urgent
15 December 2015 (IRIN ), After the deadliest clashes in eight months of political unrest in Burundi, the need for talks to mediate the crisis over President Pierre Nkurunziza's controversial third term is greater than ever. But Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, the lead negotiator, has his own election to worry about and many fear time is running out before things will unravel further:

Smugglers are least bad option for border returnees
10 December 2015 (IRIN ), Give up on their dreams and go home, seek asylum from Greece’s dysfunctional bureaucracy with the prospect of deportation if they fail, or run the gauntlet of smuggling operations and plough on into northern and western Europe: the options facing thousands of migrants and refugees forcibly removed from the Greek-Macedonian border are all bad.

Comment: What talks in Burundi should look like
17 November 2015 (IRIN ), Warnings of a looming genocide in Burundi dangerously misrepresent the nature of the crisis in my country, but the widespread calls for urgent mediated talks are nevertheless well founded. They are an essential step to halting a cycle of violence that has claimed some 240 lives since April.

Cracks widen within Burundi’s army
12 October 2015 (IRIN ), A central pillar of the peace accords that ended a civil war in Burundi a decade ago – integrating fomer Hutu rebels into the Tutsi-dominated army to create a more ethnically balanced force – is looking distinctly wobbly.

Hospitals and war crimes: a patchy record
7 October 2015 (IRIN ), MSF says the bombing of their hospital in Kunduz by a US warplane was a war crime. The four separate enquiries that have been launched into the incident, which killed 22 people, should show whether the medical charity is right. But precedent suggests that whatever their findings, criminal prosecutions are unlikely.
