Controversy continues to rage over mining in Zimbabwe’s Marange alluvial diamond fields, & Voice of America reports a deal has been reached to sell Marange diamonds.

According to the World Diamond Council, the agreement allows two Marange operations to sell diamonds on the international market and a third, run by Chinese interests, will be allowed to resume sales following third-party verification.

The agreement, reached in Kinshasa, Congo, was supported by members of the Kimberley Process, which is a system to prevent the sale of so-called “blood diamonds”.

The United States opposed the decision by abstaining from voting.
