Just some news bits

I haven't been keeping up with world events lately, so here are some news bits from other places in the world.

Guatemala

Guatemala searches through the records of the National Police for those who went missing during the civil war.

Egypt

Skirmishes with police during elections leave several people dead. The U.S. is feeling less optimistic about Mubarak's commitment to democratic reform.

Afghanistan

On the bright side, people in Afghanistan are generally optimistic about their future.

Southeast Asia

Myanmar is on everybody's shit list.

Eritrea

Eritrea ejects U.N. Peacekeepers. Is this the beginning of a new Ethiopian-Eritrean war?

why must you always post disturbing news, Arthur? Isn't there anything happy going on anywhere in the world?

Nope, it's all pretty shitty, unless you're particularly into Shadenfreude. However, I thought that the news from Afghanistan was at least somewhat uplifting.
