CONAKRY - Every year, hundreds of thousands of discarded and polluting cars from all over Europe are shipped from Belgium to West Africa. There the wrecks, which pose a threat to the health and safety of the population, can continue to travel hundreds of thousands of kilometres. Attempts to tackle this trade have come to nothing. Simon Oeyen and Arnaud De Decker went to Conakry, the capital of Guinea, in search of our old wrecks.
Nepal was badly hit by deadly floods in August. Entire villages have been swept away, thousands of families still survive from the aid industry. Mainly rice, clean water, and tens are distributed to assist the families.
