Madagascar: A new gold mine attracts thousands of migrants
A new gold mine discovered and located in the region of Bongolava Ankazotovo in western Madagascar, drains in its wake an influx of thousands of people in search of El Dorado.

Some elements of the Malagasy police were dispatched urgently to secure the area invaded by a crowd of migrants and begin a precise identification of the location of this new gold mine.

"The situation became uncontrollable. Thousands of people are currently displaced at Ankazotovo. Everyday, there has been a new arrival", confesses a witness on the spot to the lexpressmada.com site.
