Apparently there is unrest and Muslim rebels in the area where easy child is staying in Ghana. It began last night - here are two articles that explain (this is NOT what the locals told easy child and her friend was the cause!!): http://www.modernghana.com/news/400656/1/one-shot-dead-in-hohoe-riots-but-uneasy-calm-retur.html http://www.ghanaweb.com/GhanaHomePage/NewsArchive/artikel.php?ID=241563&comment=0#com I'm praying that things settle down and she can finish her time there and then get the heck outta there!!! They arrived at the school this morning just as the reports broke. They were escorted back to their hotel, which is only a ten minute drive from the unrest, and are under lockdown. The hotel is sort of like a small compound with cement walls and gates, which are all locked. I've signed up with the Embassy to receive reports should an evacuation be necessary, but as of right now the local police are supposedly handling things. The Ghanian government has not become involved and most do not think they will. The girls are about 4 hours by car way from the capital where the embassy is and the airport. My insides are shaking.
