Abyei, 2

I know there’s a lot of press going on right now, and I don’t have reliable enough internet right now to do this topic justice, but things in Juba are very calm.  Most people here aren’t too worried about it, and the only real difference we’re seeing is more security personnel out on the street.  I work pretty near to the ministries offices and the security there was still average.

Anything that’s going on is happening (and in the coming months will probably continue to happen) in Abyei.  Which is not really anything new.  The area has been disputed for a long time.

Only thing happening in Juba was some peaceful protests of students, but that was only about 300 people.

Apparently the US state department is supposed to be making a statement soon.  I may amend this post if I have internet after that happens.
