The Meltdown in Kenya
Kenya has spiraled downward from one of the most stable, peaceful African nations into a police state after the riots from last Wednesday's election. Perhaps the most aggregious event was the burning alive of 50 people in their church - where they had gone to seek refuge from the violence.
As usual, the best roundup of all the news going on in Kenya, by Kenyan bloggers, can be found at Global Voices Online.
All live broadcasts have been suspended by the government. The order was released as ODM was addressing their press conference. This is now officially a police state. So we have no idea what ODM is saying, and what the security situation is around the country.
