In China's palm....

"Thomas Mumba died on April 20, 2005 when an explosives depot blew up in the Chambeshi copper mine. He had just turned 23 and had been working in the mine for two years. To this day, no one knows how many people died that day, because the mine's Chinese owners attempted to cover up what they knew about the accident. Besides, they had kept no records of who was working near the explosion site on the day of the accident".

Extract from a new Spiegiel Online article on China's growing economic influence in Africa entitled Age of the Dragon : China's Conquest of Africa.
