Abstract: In November 2007 a middle-aged English primary-school teacher in Khartoum named Gillian Gibbons was arrested and jailed for allowing her class of seven-year olds, after due electoral process, to name a teddy bear "Mohammed." Gibbons might have thought she'd be safe in Khartoum. The Civil War had ended two years earlier; and Khartoum was a long way from the ravages of famine and the fighting in Darfur. But with the Rift Valley Fever epidemic starting up and the terrible floods that year she should have known it would not be a teddy bears' picnic (BBC News, 2007).
