National Geographic’s “LOST IN THE SAHEL” by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning foreign correspondent Paul Salopek who was literally lost when he was captured and imprisoned in Darfur for five weeks in 2006 while reporting for National Geographic. The article recounts his capture and offers an intimate look at an area that is home to 50 million of the world’s poorest people afflicted by years of war, corruption and poverty.

Editor in Chief Chris Johns also writes about working to free Salopek, his driver and his interpreter-guide from the Sudanese jail.

I meant to post this earlier. The whole issue is pretty spectacular, get a copy if you can.
