Reuters list of best websites around for analysis and news on Sudan

Thanks to Reuters AlertNet for linking to Sudan Watch. Here below is a copy of the sites they've chosen to link to. Thank goodness they've not pointed their readers to American warmongers Eric Reeves and Nicholas Kristof. I've not had a chance to visit and read the Sudanese Optimist, Humanitarian Relief or Thirsty Palmetto (Update: I've just loaded their RSS feeds into my newsreader but Thirsty Palmetto's Atom feed won't load). Alex de Waal's blog Making Sense of Darfur ought to be compulsory reading for any Sudan watchers. Incidentally, Rob Crilly's tweets make amusing reading even though he recently left Khartoum and is back at his base in Nairobi where he is writing a book on Darfur.

Thanks for the great write-up about our Sudan resources Ingrid! Thought you might like to see the latest update from one of the aid workers recently kicked out of Sudan. Some powerful detail about food and water running out, shortages in child malnutrition centres, big health risks as rainy season comes along:

A month since they kicked us out of Sudan
