I had to sleep, therefore I could NOT provide an evening site-to-site breakdown. If anyone watched fully, please add your thoughts. Here is the summary of properties evaluated in the evening that were inscribed. In addition, I did briefly scan the evening events the following day. Here are the results.

Baptism Site "Bethany Beyond the Jordan" (Al-Maghtas) Inscribe
Arab-Norman Palermo and the Cathedral Churches of CefalĂș and Monreale Inscribe
Rock Art in the Hail Region of Saudi Arabia Inscribe

Thimlich Ohinga Cultural Landscape Referral
Nyero and other hunter-gatherer geometric rock art sites in Eastern Uganda Referral
*Uganda was literally 3 seconds from Deferral, when Senegal saves the day.

The WHC as a whole is not willing to give out a Deferral, no matter how weak the nomination. It is now official the WHC has inscribed 0 new nominations from Africa this year. By the way, the delegate from Jordan gave a quite meaningful speech about how important it is for the preservation of heritage, regardless of which religion it belongs (particularly in these times). He highlighted the willingness and dedication of Jordan to protect its Christian heritage sites.

Thanks again for following up, winterkjm. I'll do my duties on Saturday and Sunday.

I wonder if any WH traveller has visited this site. I could not even find a word about it on Wikipedia:
