News Round-Up

Lots going on:

A cheer goes to Fujimori on Trial for carrying on the long slog of reporting every single session of the marathon case. The gem in this report:
Fujimori’s lawyer announced that he had forgotten his work material, including his glasses and notes.
Fujimori's defense says crimes committed by Montesinos, not Fujimori (Fujimori on Trial)

Farc rallies its battered troops (BBC)

And two from Mr. Trend at Alterdestiny:

Plus, an excellent start to what should be a really informative series:
