World Vision identifies hot spots for 2000comment (0)

January 6, 2000


FEDERAL WAY, Wash. – Sri Lanka, Montenegro and an African “arc of conflict” will be among the 10 most volatile areas of violence, war and political instability in the coming year, according to the evangelical relief agency World Vision.

In it s second annual listing of the top 10 global hot spots, the agency also identified Nigeria, Colombia, Angola, Pakistan/India, Sierra Leone, Chechnya and Indonesia.

“These are the world’s 10 most violent and vulnerable areas,” said Serge Duss, director of public policy and government relations for World Vision.

“The difference between peace and war is often a difficult and delicate balance influenced by politics, cultural, or tribal heritage, and rebel groups determined to topple either democratically elected leaders or illegimate regimes,” Duss said.
