Africa: AfricaFocus Web Updates

AfricaFocus Bulletin
Jun 22, 2008 (080622)
(Web Updates)

Editor's Note

In the almost five years of publication of AfricaFocus Bulletin, the number of sources available to readers over the internet, by web and e-mail, has continued to grow exponentially. I am pleased that so many of you continue to find this occasional bulletin of carefully selected analysis useful.

I am also continuing to work to make the AfricaFocus website more useful to an even wider range of readers, most of whom (over 80%) arrive at the site through search engines, often searching for good information on issues currently in the news or for information on a specific country or issue.

As you know, they and you can find on the site a full archive of past AfricaFocus Bulletins (this one is number 338). The archive is also accessible by country and by topic. And a set of country pages gives additional background sources, including the most recent news and analysis from AllAfrica.com, IRIN, and Human Rights Watch.

This AfricaFocus Bulletin provides a quick update of new features recently added to http://www.africafocus.org, of recommended sites for current coverage and analysis of the crisis in Zimbabwe, and of new content added to http://www.noeasyvictories.org
