  • WFP chief appeals for peace on World Food Day

    WORLD, 2017/10/17 The Executive Director of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) on Monday made an impassioned plea for peace amid mounting evidence of the links between conflict, migration and rising hunger.Concerns are growing that evolution in defeating world hunger is being reversed as record numbers of people flee their homes to escape fighting. “Someday someday, World Food Day will be a celebration of a peaceful and well-fed world. Sadly, that day seems very far off right presently. We have far too much violence and conflict, and that is why we have additional people who are hungry and in need of assistance,” said WFP Executive Director David Beasley.
  • Morocco: King Mohammed VI wants rethink on poverty projects

    MOROCCO, 2017/10/15 King Mohammed VI of Morocco delivered an uncompromising speech at the opening of a parliamentary session in Rabat on Friday, where he judged the model of development of the kingdom “unfit” to respond to the demands of Moroccans.

  • 'Loudspeaker for the youth': Sudan tunes in to a new wavelength as sanctions lift

    SUDAN, 2017/10/14 The success of a western-style radio station in Sudan, where 60% of the people are under 24, offers a sign that young people are embracing the glimmer of hope offered by improved world relations. A decade ago it was possible to count the number of radio stations in Sudan on one hand. The north African country was flush with oil money; its capital, Khartoum, was enjoying a property boom; and investors from China, India and the Gulf were flooding in. But for young Sudanese it had little going for it. “They were all just leaving the country,” recalls Taha Elroubi. “All the smart kids wanted to get out of Sudan.”
  • 5 charts that show how China is spending billions in foreign aid

    CHINA, 2017/10/14 China's foreign aid is sharply in focus this week with an unprecedented new data trove showing the country's growing global reach and detailing how Beijing spends its cash. In recent decades, the world's second largest economy has evolved from an aid recipient to a net aid donor. But a lack of official information on China's development activities had prevented the international community from understanding where and how the country spends its foreign aid. That's because the government considers its international development finance program to be a "state secret," according to AidData, a research lab at Virginia-based College of William & Mary.
  • The Central African Republic could be on the brink of a bloodbath

    CENTRAL AFRICA REPUBLIC, 2017/10/13 Inside a sprawling tent camp protected by a U.N. tank and a line of barbed wire, Jerry Zoumatchi cradled an ancient rifle. He said he’d at no time touched a weapon until four months ago. But again rebels shot dead his father and his 17-year-old brother, sending him fleeing to this displaced-persons site in search of refuge and revenge. “I took up my gun to kill the [rebels] who killed my father and brother,” the 29-year-old said, fiddling with three bullets in his free hand. “I need to avenge the deaths.”
  • Grace Mugabe denies plotting to poison rival for Zimbabwe presidency

    ZIMBABWE, 2017/10/09 Wife of president Robert Mugabe says suspicions following illness of vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa are nonsensical. The wife of Robert Mugabe, the 93-year-old president of Zimbabwe, has publicly denied that she was behind the attempted poisoning of her biggest rival to succeed her husband.

    UNITED KINGDOM, 2017/09/24 ALL over Europe, there is concern about an increase in anti-Semitism, and deliberation over how to respond. Before this month the Parisian home of a 78-year-old Jewish community leader was attacked by intruders who shouted: “You are Jews, where is the money?” Along with his wife and son, the man was taken hostage, beaten and robbed, in what the government acknowledged was “an act …due related to their religion”. Around the same time, the former chief of a school in Marseille made waves by saying that at the same time as he was in charge he would advise Jews against enrolling, for fear of harassment.
