The BBC has produced a new and very interesting podcast about Zimbabwe as part of their BBC documentaries podcast series Assignment.
Assignment - Zimbabwe's Diamond Fields (25min) - download
Have you bought a diamond recently?
Would you really know where it came from?
Assignment goes into Zimbabwe's Marange diamond fields and uncovers evidence of torture camps and widescale killings.
As the international community argues over whether these diamonds should be sold on the open market, we ask if President Robert Mugabe will ever face prosecution for these crimes.
