Nizi (1.45N 30.18E) is a smaller place in Eastern Congo almost equidistant between Bunia to the South & Djugu to the north & opposite Lake Albert. Whether the manuscript Nizi is part of the address or censorship is debatable but Foden states in WW2 Censorship in the Belgian Congo (CCSG April 1989) "If population, and particularly European population , was one of the main criteria for the establishment of Censor offices, then it would not be surprising if further research were to turn up evidence of censorship at Nizi" ..

See : http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/kosovo/etc/cron.html Riots began in 1989 after Milosovec engineered alterations to the Serbian constitution that greatly affected the Kosovarians & by 1994 ethnic cleansing was being enacted that causes NATO airstrikes from 24 April against Bosnian Serbs & 1996 sees the rise of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) who on 23 Feb 1998 get labelled Terrorists by the USA thus giving Milosevic (in his mind anyway) a green light resulting in greater aggression but by 7 May 1998 the USA backtrack & stated "We will not allow the Serbs to do in Kosovo what they can no longer do in Bosnia" resulting in economic sanctions & an arms embargo with many talks taking place, while Serbian attacks & KLA retaliation’s continue throughout the year while multi national peacekeeping forces are drafted in. Finally on 20 Jun 1999 Serbs complete a withdrawal from Kosovo & on 20 Sep 1999 KFOR confirms that KLA has also completed demilitarisation.
