Dictators, mercenaries, coups, paranoia and oil

Mysterious Mr. Moto.
Severo Moto Nsa, Equatorial Guinea's exiled opposition leader reappeared in Madrid yesterday, after a strange episode in which he first was presumed abducted
(or worse), and then, from an undisclosed location in Croatia, had accused the Spanish government of trying to kill him
. He already made international headlines last year, with the most bizarre, incompetent coup attempt
in a while.
Not that the dictator
he's trying to topple is a nice character (even if his predecessor and uncle, Francisco Macías Nguema
, was even worse).
And, of course, there's oil
involved. Lots of it.
