Sorry for the lag in articles, we have been doing important local work, but are resuming service properly, we have of course: kept news, but have not published stories on all of it here.

On Tuesday: the "Lord's Resistance Army" (LRA): accused of mass murder by the Catholic Umbrella (Social Justice/ Humanitarian/ Charity) grouping: Caritas Internationalis, among others, but still denying many claims: has desperately called for a peace treaty: after the armies of three nations joined in offensive to drive the group accused of massive human rights abuses: from the (DRC) Congo.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the (DRC) country, it was reported by Reuters: yesterday, that a mediator: of talks which occur in Kenya: has asked for a temporary ceasefire, between the Congolese government: and these other rebels. This second conflict is the one which made most major news stations, after tens of thousands fled their homes. The first made newspapers: with the attack of a Catholic church, and slaughter of those inside of it.
