Equatorial Guinea: Poverty and Rights Abuses Amid Oil Wealth

Equatorial Guinea has one of the highest GDPs per capita in the world, but the people who live there are some of the world's poorest. Kari Barber and Nico Colombant travel to the tiny Central African nation to take a look at where some of that money is going - a new presidential palace for instance. This video was part of a multimedia package done for the Christian Science Monitor. The Voice of America and Wide Angle on PBS also broadcast or posted the story on their web sites.
