4) This week's summary of under-reported news

Compiled by Bob Nixon

 A new resettlement program by the Sri Lankan Army is moving over 100,000 people displaced by the ongoing civil war, but the effort is facing criticism for not living up to international standards on access to education, water and sanitation.  Democrats in Congress are laying the groundwork for a thaw in Cuba relations. But the effort is being kept low key, as a sudden shift in Cuba policy could cost both parties key votes in Florida for the 2008 presidential election.  A long strike by security guards at the main plant for servicing nuclear weapons may have left the plant vulnerable to terrorist attack.
