"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


Sudan past the brink

The situation in Sudan is, to put it mildly, not good. While Khartoum and Juba came to an agreement on temporary status for Abyei earlier today (full text here), increasingly alarming reports from South Kordofan and its Nuba Mountains suggest that the situation will get much, much worse before it improves. UNOCHA's daily reports on the situation there suggest that a targeted campaign against the Nuba is being carried out. It is not an exaggeration to say that what is happening in Sudan today could eclipse the scale of the humanitarian tragedies in Syria, Yemen, and Libya.

Here is some of the best reporting and analysis I've seen on the situation in recent days. Please feel free to add other links and suggestions in the comments.

Great information - thanks so much for the links! As a humanitarian worker based in Goma, DRC, this situation is very important to monitor.
