They are symbols of affection widely thought to be as pure as love itselfand the vast majority are legal stones that are mined, exported and sold in the clear light of day. But for years, some diamonds have been sold illegallywith devastating results linking to war, blood and brutality. In the diamond-rich West African nation of Sierra Leone, rebels have used the precious gems to bankroll a violent ten-year insurrection, leaving a terrorized population and a ravaged landscape in its wake. Join National Geographic from Europe to Africa to uncover the truth about the dark side of the diamond trade.
