Central African Republic
Africa is a big continent. It is too big to pay attention to the whole thing all the time even when you live here. As a result I often do not catch big stories until long after they get underway if at all. At any rate it is only in the last couple of days that I have become aware of the ongoing events in the Central African Republic. Apparently for the last three weeks rebels have been rapidly advancing towards the capital. If anybody has anything not reported by AP or Reuters to add please put it in the comments.
