This week on War News Radio, “By Force.” Reporter Liliana Frankel spent summer 2015 living and working at a migrant shelter in Oaxaca, Mexico. While she was there, she collected interviews with people passing through. This week, we hear the story of Lisandro Lopez, a Honduran veteran of the Iraq War. Lisandro’s is the first in a series of stories we’re producing from Liliana’s interviews. Take a listen.

We also recorded a version of this show in Spanish. Listen here:

This week on War News Radio, we present a show from our sister studio, the Sudan Radio Project.

First, we hear about US-Sudan relations in the past two decades and how major events like the September 11 terrorist attacks have shaped them.

Next, an update on current tensions and progress made in the North and South surrounding the referendum.

Then, a look at the African Championship of Nations, a soccer tournament to be hosted by Sudan in February 2011.

And last, we learn about the concerns at the United Nations about potential conflict arising from the upcoming January referendum–and if it even happens at all.
