This ambitious five-part series on “Nightline” lays bare the ongoing war in the Congo that has claimed more than 2.5 million lives in the last few years alone. It is the story of murder, greed, violence and the quest for power, rooted in the genocide in Rwanda and in the conflict between rebels and the government over immense natural resources. “Nightline” catalogues the economic, ecological and human desecration that has occurred through individual programs that focus on emblematic characters: a rape victim, an Italian missionary, a park ranger and others. The series is the perfect rebuttal for those who say news from abroad cannot be made compelling for an American audience.

Martin Seemungal, correspondent; James Blue, Elissa Rubin, producers; Tom Bettag, Leroy Sievers, executive producers; Ted Koppel, anchor and managing editor.
