Conflict in Libya demoted to the bottom of BBC News: Peace inevitable

BBC News Japanese Earthquake

In the wake of the horrific 8.9 earthquake to rip though Japan, our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends affected.

However, I can’t help but notice that there is now effectively very little coverage of the conflict in Libya. I for one, actually still want to know what’s happening over there. I logged  on to the BBC News website before, only to find one small measly box with a link to a generic coverage and articles page.




I couldn’t help but notice that the link to the live coverage of the Japan tsunami had effectively hijacked the Libya coverage page:

I believe that due to the immense lack of attention that Libya is now getting, peace will probably just be restored as no-one is paying any attention, and has been demoted to as much attention as the police would give a suspicious man on a bike in London with too many flashing lights on his helmet.
