Human Rights Watch have released a report about atrocities at the Marange diamond field in eastern Zimbabwe. I wrote about was happening there in the Saturday Telegraph Magazine three months ago.

Zimbabwe’s great diamond rush brutally suppressed by Robert Mugabe’s regime

When diamonds were found in a field near his parents’ farm in Zimbabwe, Douglas Rogers watched as everyone from goat-herders to government officials piled in to line their pockets. As the boom turned to tragedy, he followed the fortunes of a dealer called Fatso.

On a bright morning in September 2007, a seven-ton truck pulled up at my parents’ game farm and backpacker lodge in a remote valley in the eastern mountains of Zimbabwe. Piled high on the back of the truck were crates upon crates of a precious substance that had run out in the country in mid-2007 and that a desperate, depressed population needed more than ever: beer.
