This week I just wanted to highlight these three articles. They are all a bit more serious than the usual round-up . I hope you enjoy!
Four Kidnapped Aid Workers Rescued- Here’s a sample of what I’ve been reading about in Kenya. There has been a lot of violence here in the past few weeks (a grenade attack in Mombasa, a church-bombing, etc.).
