Here is where you can post your first "update" entry.
Remember that the Council on Foreign Relations page for each of your conflicts has a "Breaking News" link in the middle column. You don't have to get your news from there, but you can if you need to.
For this first week, the information can go back to September, though it doesn't have to.
You don't yet need to keep track of the news sources.
You should try to look at several sources, not simply summarize one news story.
It ought to be between 100 and 200 words.
You must have the name of the conflict at the top of your post as a title (and no, the title isn't part of the word count!).
