Political Unrest in Madagascar Continues

So the political unrest in Madagascar continues. Sadly, yesterday over 20 people were killed in Tana, the capital city. The news took a toll on Peace Corps Volunteers and some PCVs are considering returning to the US in light of the continued violence. All volunteers currently have the option of taking interrupted service. We have been offered to take an early completion of service since we are so close to completing our service in May. But since we never got a chance to properly bring projects to a close and say goodbye to our friends in our village we aren't currently considering that option. Most volunteers are thinking along the same lines as we are. So we continue to wait and hope with the volunteers around Fort Dauphin for the situation to be peacefully resolved without more violence like yesterday's tragedy.
