As you may already know by now, we have launched our first special section on the Sama Gazette: En Route To Sudan. Dedicated to news and resources about Sudan, this section of the site counts many visitors everyday and we hope it will help everyone to find interesting information about Sudan, and learn about the referendums, the challenges and issues.
Amongst the many links to websites and twitter pages we mention Rebecca Hamilton. She is a Special Correspondent on Sudan for The Washington Post and she is also the author of the forthcoming book, Fighting for Darfur (to be released on February 2011), a book we have already listed in ‘Books We Recommend’. You can follow Rebecca Hamilton on Twitter @bechamilton and here is a list of recent tweets she sent:
