Migingo - The Island That Could Spark a War

Have you ever heard of Migingo? Well, me neither but it seems that this tiny island is likely to start a war in the near future. It may not be oil that will cause this conflict (for once) but something else quite unexpected. has the low down.

From the article
An international stand-off has been brewing for months and could escalate to full blown war because of this tiny little bit of rock which has an area of less than an acre. People have made their homes there and have been reaping the rewards of their endeavours as fishermen because that particular bit of Lake Victoria, the largest tropical lake in the world, is deep and rich with stocks of fish. It currently “belongs” to Uganda.
