Heard about it on the BBC news this morning; there was I thinking Mr Gomer had his own city...a bit of research shows its spelt differently but... (from the BBC Website http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/7699286.stm):


Quote:
Chaos grips major DR Congo city

Congolese soldiers ride a bike into Goma
Soldiers have reportedly been stealing vehicles to flee the city

There are reports of chaotic scenes in Goma in the Democratic Republic of Congo, as police try to arrest soldiers whom the UN says seem out of control.


(etc)

I'm sure the place would make a lovely holiday/safari destination for someone?

He has his own page on Wikipedia.

This is far more likely.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gomer

Quote:
The Persian historian Muhammad ibn Jarir al-Tabari (c. 915) recounts a Persian tradition that Gomer, lived to the age of 1000, noting that this record equalled that of Nimrod, but was unsurpassed by anyone else mentioned in the Torah.


Quote:
......some Welsh antiquarians posited that the Welsh people were descended from the Cimmerians and from Gomer


Quote:
For Gomer founded those whom the Greeks now call Galatians, but were then called Gomerites


I must correct that entry - we all know it's GomerBoyz. Silly error to make.

Fact or fiction ? Very Happy

Ah, glad I wasn't the only one to think that.
I was listening to the World Service last night and heard it mentioned.
Couldnt sleep for giggling and thinking of a Blues Bro avatar.
Then frantic lotto lads searching for their chopped dollaswhile this rich puppetmaster has a city all to himself.
Laughing

Joking aside, the situation there seems to be worsening
Refugees fleeing the city without any help from the local army, in fact they seem to be part of the problem.
As ever in war/civil war it's the innocent civilians suffering, usually the poorest who have no means of transport or other escape
