Top News Article | "NYUNGWE FOREST, Rwanda (Reuters) - Surviving a rebel attack and braving crocodile-infested waters, a group of explorers has completed an 80-day voyage down the world's longest river reaching what they say is the source of the Nile.

The three explorers from Britain and New Zealand claim to be the first to have traveled the river from its mouth to its 'true source' deep in Rwanda's lush Nyungwe rainforest.

'History has been rewritten,' British explorer Neil McGrigor told reporters on Friday. 'This is the end of an 80 day amazing and exhausting journey.'"
