I have decided to make a dedicated thread for geography related news stories so other threads can be found easier.

The general news thread will also have relevant stories: http://www.hsn.uk.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=2970

Earlier this week: 'Cholera reaches Congo's capital', http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/6331233.stm
