Reson is a 12 year old Maasai girl from Kajiado.

By James M. Dorsey

A decision by the handball federations of Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates to boycott the 2015 World Men's Handball Championship to be hosted by Qatar in January signals the failure of efforts to reconcile the idiosyncratic Gulf state with its regional detractors and casts further doubts on the prospects of a Gulf Cooperation Council (GGC) scheduled to be held in Qatar in December.

Who Shot Ahmed? Cover

 

The journalist Elizabeth Dickinson has a vital new e-single: Who Shot Ahmed? A Mystery Unravels in Bahrain's Botched Arab Spring.  It is a compelling, fast paced read about a tragedy, a government coverup and a family's quest for justice.
