There appears to be a thing happening on the Eritrea/Ethiopia border. Accusations and denials abound. Analysis form Simon Allison here.
Meanwhile, Rwanda has sent some more Burundian back to their own country, allegedly over allegations of espionage, as tensions between the Burundi and Rwanda continue to rise. It is unclear whether the Burundians expelled were recent arrivals, asylum seekers, refugees and/or people who had been living in Rwanda for some time.

I recently did an online Coursera course in Global Health and Humanitarianism. It's a six week course offered by the University of Manchester's Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI). Humanitarianism is pretty specialised and there isn't a lot of good, solid free info out there. This was obviously focused on medical humanitarianism. Good handling of the issues and dilemmas and an engaging course. Not too challenging - would be good as an intro, too. I'd recommend it.
