congo watch

Goma can't catch a break. Rebels attacked Sake on Sunday, and the outlying volcano erupted yesterday. This is not terribly surprising; Jacques the vulcanologist was expecting Nyamulagira to erupt soon when I was there. But my gosh. Of all the things they don't need.

Please say a prayer for my friends there. Kabila has been confirmed by the Supreme Court as the winner of the presidential election. This should be a time for hope in Congo, not war and natural disasaters.
