    Mali CMC Makes N'ko Newspaper's Circulation Soar
    12-01-2005 (UNESCO) - Before the community multimedia centre (CMC)
    opened in Koutiala, Mali's second largest industrial town, the only
    local paper in the N'ko alphabet was painstakingly written out by hand.
    Just 20 copies of each issue of the Bambara-language "Sindjiya" were
    made.
