  • Bosnian War: Looking back at the long siege of Sarajevo, 30 years on

    Thirty years have passed since the siege of Sarajevo began in April 1992. The anniversary of this key moment in the Bosnian War comes as the world sees many tragic comparisons with current events in Ukraine. Sarajevo was under siege from Serbian forces for almost four years, the longest blocade of any capital city in modern warfare. More than 11,000 lives were lost. The city was eventually liberated with the help of the international community. But for those who witnessed events in Sarajevo first-hand, the memories are hard to bear.

  • Algerian War: Looking back at the Évian Accords, 60 years on

    On March 18, 1962, after almost eight years of brutal war, France and Algeria signed a series of ceasefire agreements in the French spa town of Évian, paving the way for Algeria's independence. But the initial relief was followed by a particularly violent transition period. The OAS, a dissident far-right French paramilitary group that refused Algerian independence, stepped up its bombings and assassinations, leading to the departure of hundreds of thousands of French settlers from Algeria. Sixty years after Évian, our reporters have tracked down witnesses and key players from this crucial chapter in the history of the two countries.
