Very strange. A plane containing at least some South African mercenaries, heading for God-knows-where, has been impounded in Zimbabwe. Possible destinations include Equatorial Guinea (to stage a coup), the eastern DR Congo (to guard mining operations) and, according to another report, Iraq (to assist with security).

Am I alone in noting that a certain type of South African has an affinity for getting involved in these forms of mayhem? I also find myself musing over just how one ends up in this line of work. Hopefully the bizarre details of this story will unravel in the days to come...
