Africa's 'watershed' year

The Christian Science Monitor's Chris Hennemeyer describes the year 2006 as a 'watershed' for Africa. It might be hard to wax eloquent about a year in which not only is there a genocide going on, but one that's getting worse. But Hennemeyer notes that there has been positive movement in several protracted conflicts, such as those in the reconstruction of southern Sudan, peace talks for northern Uganda a peace deal in Burundi, rebuilding in Liberia and landmark elections in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
