15:30 Press Release

1530: Our sources from the capitol city have reported that violence has resumed.  A number of missing persons reports have also been filed, and our Crisis Mapping team has received many requests for medical aid.  We have been in contact with an NGO who is en route to provide medical aid at this time.  Negotiations between rival groups, as well as the UN, are currently taking place in the capitol.  The IDP camp is now essentially empty, and journalists have begun to contact displaced citizens about the recent events.  Peaceful protests have begun as negotiations continue.  Those involved in negotiations are optimistic that agreements may be reached. Requests for aid, including missing persons reports, should be sent via SMS text to +16176826346
