Namibia Genocide Reparation Negotiations On Home Stretch

Germeny's Economic cooperation and development minister Gerd Müller has said genocide reparation negotiations between the German and Namibian governments could soon be finalised. At least 100,000 Namibians were killed between 1904 and 1908 as a result of a mass extermination policy initiated by German colonial troops in South West Africa, now known as Namibia, when the territory was a German colony.
