Putin & All The Fine Young Cannibals!
#2
That was not a misplaced statement by Putin. Cannibalism is still alive in central Africa, particularly the Congo region. I recall several times reading of African leaders eating their rivals in the 1970s and 1980s. The most famous was Idi "Big Daddy" Amin, but he was by no means unique. I just can't remember the names of some of the other African heads-of-state who ate their political opponents.

Currently, Pygmies are asking for help because they are being hunted as game animals by Congolese tribes.

Here are some links discussing cannibalism in Africa from a historical perspective and more recent dinning habits.
