It's about time

ECOWAS agrees to send troops to northern Mali.

Via email correspondences with some friends at the University of Bamako I was assured that their day to day lives haven't been affected too much by the recent governmental woes, sporadic reports of violence in Bamako, or all the nonsense happening up north.  I haven't heard from friends in Yanfolila in awhile but I imagine they would report the same, being much further removed from everything happening.

Much needed countermeasures provided by the much appreciated World Service here and here.
