Mali's ex-junta chief Sanogo goes on trial over killings | Reuters

By Adama Diarra | SIKASSO, Mali SIKASSO, Mali A Malian court began a trial of former coup leader General Amadou Sanogo on Wednesday on charges of "complicity in kidnapping and assassination," three and a half years after his junta was accused of killing 21 soldiers.Sanogo led a coup in March 2012 that deposed former President Amadou Toumani Toure and plunged Mali into chaos, enabling Tuareg rebels and Islamist militants to take over the north. He was arrested in December 2013.Authorities in the same month found a mass grave believed to contain the bodies of missing soldiers. #United States #Business #markets #Africa #Argentina #Foreign policy #kidnapping

Dozens of civilians abducted and killed in Afghanistan | Reuters

HERAT, Afghanistan Gunmen rounded up and shot dozens of civilians in a remote part of Afghanistan on Tuesday, UN officials said, in an attack that prompted angry protests from residents about government failure to protect them. The provincial governor's spokesman blamed fighters from Islamic State for the killings in the central-western province of Ghor, but there was no independent confirmation.The militant group has hitherto been largely confined to the eastern province of Nangarhar, and other officials said they doubted it was involved.Government security forces have long struggled to exert control in Ghor, a poor and mountainous province with sharp ethnic and tribal divisions and illegal armed groups that operate with impunity.The United Nations, condemning the incident as an "atrocity", said 26 men were killed by unidentified gunmen after being taken hostage while collecting firewood. It said the fate of other hostages remained unknown.Taliban insurgents denied responsibility and said the killings appeared to have been prompted by ethnic rivalries fuelled by a clash over sheep-stealing #United States #Afghanistan #Argentina #United Kingdom #Foreign policy #kidnapping #article

Nigeria's President Buhari says wife belongs in the kitchen | Reuters

By Andreas Rinke and Andrea Shalal | BERLIN BERLIN Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday dismissed criticism voiced by his wife Aisha Buhari in a BBC interview, saying she belonged in the kitchen and he had "superior knowledge" about running a government."I don't know exactly what party my wife belongs to. Actually she belongs in the kitchen, the living room and the other rooms in my house," Buhari told reporters with a chuckle after a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.Buhari's wife told the BBC in an interview published on Friday that she might not back her husband in the next election unless he shakes up his government. Her husband, a 73-year-old former military ruler, was elected last year after a campaign largely fought on his pledge to crush the Islamist militant group Boko Haram and crack down on corruption. #Europe #Government #markets #Africa #Security #kidnapping

French government faces criticism of security after church attack | Reuters

PARIS/SAINT-ETIENNE-DU-ROUVRAY, France France's Socialist government fended off criticism of its security record on Wednesday in the wake of revelations that one of the assailants who slit the throat of a priest at a church altar was a known would-be jihadist under police surveillance. President Francois Hollande met interfaith leaders in an effort to promote national unity. But his predecessor and potential opponent in a presidential election next year, Nicolas Sarkozy, said the government must take stronger steps to track known Islamist sympathisers #India #markets #Crime #Argentina #French #kidnapping
