This is representing the rwandan genocide when the hutus gathered to kill the tutsis because they thought they killed their president. The results of this genocide was that 800,000+ people died.
Men in africa were forced to mine for diamonds so the army can buy their weapons for war. To make sure that the people that are supposed to be mining are mining people would patrol the mines with guns.
In the war the army needed as much soldiers as possible so they went to villages and no matter how old they were they were given an ak-47 and given drugs and sent into war.
