RI's Web Roundup

By Briana Orr
From around the world and around the web this week:

After a shaky start, the Peace Jirga is underway in Kabul. Reuters provides live blogging.

Meanwhile, postcard images from 1950s Afghanistan take us back to a time when Kabul “had rock 'n' roll, not rockets.”

Displaced Haitians make a home on a highway median just wide enough for a mattress. Pictures and audio from NPR.

UNEP sponsored this video that weaves together the voices of people whose daily lives are already being shaped by climate change-- from Peru to the Maldives.

And finally, last week RI’s Joel Charny appeared on the Diane Rehm show to discuss Little Bee, the award winning novel from Chris Cleave that tells the story of a Nigerian refugee’s journey from a detention center in London.
