Sudanese Death Toll in Cairo

If you've been keeping up on this blog, you'll know about the Sudanese sit-in that has been going on for the past three months. (If you don't know about it, search through past blog entries.) This past Friday, December 30th, over 20 Sudanese died when the Egyptian police came into the sit-in and demanded that all the Sudanese leave. Below is a link to an article about it (you can find MANY more--it's all over international news) and I encourage you to read it. As you do, please share your thoughts about this. Although the Egyptian government has been more than patient with the sit-in refugees, this brutality is uncalled for-completely disgusting and horrifying. At the same time, most articles I've read on the issue are your typical playing-at-the-heart strings and making the UNHCR and other organizations look bad. As we all know, there are many sides to every story. Just keep that in mind.

I'll update about Bethlehem and Jerusalem soon.
