There have been strides made to stop the distribution of blood diamonds. The goverments of African counties and other countires around the world want to stop aiding rebel groups in Africa who do cruel things inorder to get diamonds. There have been many solutions on how to control the flow of diamonds from Africa but it is not easy. There are people who smuggle diamonds across the border. They bring diamonds into countires where they can be certified and then these diamonds make it on to ther market. Sometimes the person who is buying these diamonds from the smugglers knows that those diamonds are blood diamonds and is paid of in order to accept them.
