Mapping conflicts in Africa

Reuters’ Alertnet reports on a new online tool for mapping conflicts in Africa:

A new online data tool for monitoring conflict trends in Africa can help governments and aid workers to analyse the impact of political, social and armed conflicts on communities, its creators said.
