New Book Exposes Gang Violence in Africa

National Geographic has published a new book about gang violence in Africa. Relentless Enemies is a photojournalistic exploration of the murder and brutality that has erupted between the Tsaro lions and the Okavango buffalo, who have been warring for control of the Duba plains of Botswana.

Authors Dereck and Beverly Joubert spent two years living among the bloodshed as they documented the turf war. In past disputes, the territorial buffalo proved invulnerable to attack, thanks to fierce loyalty among members and tightly organized defenses, but experts say they are falling to a younger, increasingly hostile lion crew.
