  • A rebellion seems to be on the raise in Nigeria (Full) and Niger (Full)
  • Relief agencies still don't have full access to the displaced civilians after the Tamil was defeated in Sri Lanka. (Full)
  • Southern Sudan seems to fall back into violence (Full)
  • ...while in Darfur, the war is flaring up again (Full)
  • Pakistan's offensive in the Swat valley displaced 2.3 million people, with aid agencies scrambling to cope. (Full)
