Zulus re-enact Battle of Isandlwana 144 years after victory over the British


Thousands of Zulu men, called "amabutho", participate in a reenactment of the battle of Isandlwana. The battle was the first engagement in the Anglo-Zulu war on the 22 of January 1879 and was the greatest triumph in the Zulu nation’s military history, as well as being one of the biggest defeats for the British Empire.

  • Ukraine's counter-offensive in Kharkiv: 'Most significant victory in this war after the battle for Kyiv'

    Ukraine's army recaptured around "2,000 kilometres of territory" in September, President Volodymyr Zelensky announced Saturday, adding that the Russian army was doing the right thing in fleeing the counter-offensive. As Russia's war on Ukraine reaches a dramatic new phase in the conflict, FRANCE 24 is joined by Peter Zalmayev, Director of the Eurasian Democracy Initiative. Could this be a turning point in the war? Mr. Zalmayev remains cautious, asserting "it's too soon to declare victory, it's too soon to celebrate it. When advances are so rapid, one has to proceed cautiously." For him, over the next few days, it's just a question of whether the Ukrainian soldiers will "consolidate their gains or whether they will go further. But already this is being declared as probably the most significant victory in this war after the battle for Kyiv."
