Can you name at least 10 countries in Africa without peeking at a map?

Posted by   + Show Post

I'm watching the news and they are discussing Africa, in particular Mali and Canada going over to help the Malians.  One of the questions that was asked was can you name 5 countries in Africa. 

I'm curious, without cheating and looking at a map, can you name at least 10 countries in Africa?  There are 54 countries to choose from.

ETA:  Can you name the African country that is smack dab in the middle of another African country?

UPDATE:  Answers on page 4 of the 55 African countries.

Going through the list I could have named 10, but I probably would have added a few that are actualy province, instead of actual countries.  I sometimes get confused by province and countries themselves.
