    There's so much horrid news coming out of Africa that I couldn't decide which item to share. This is just one of many and, IMHO, well-worth reading.

    Violence Increasing Against Displaced People in Eastern DRC
    December 04, 2012 — The U.N. refugee agency says it is very worried about the security of displaced people and aid workers in camps in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo after an attack Saturday at a camp outside Goma. The UNHCR and other aid agencies say increasing violence in the region is preventing the delivery of urgently needed assistance to tens of thousands of internally displaced people.

    Not news to some of us: The constant civil unrest in most of Africa are instigated by "developed" nations. Few weeks ago, an Africa analyst on CCTV Africa (on Houston Antenna TV 55.6) said the unrest and violence at African mining sites are all caused by companies from developed nations and the UN.
