Summary Congo Uprising: The Democratic Republic of Congo like many other former colonies faced a long period of political instability and complicated maneuverings following its independence from its old colonizers, Belgium in 1960. The next five years became known as the Congo crisis, with the establishment of the first republic ushering in a period of turmoil, which had various elements. Pol Pot and the Killing Fields: When an entire country becomes associated with an epithet like 'the killing fields', it certainly warrants inclusion in any list of infamous places. This was the term used to describe the mass grave sites of Cambodia in the late 1970s. Officially renamed as the democratic Kampuchea, the country under the rule of the Khmer Rouge was a very grim place indeed
