Long sentence for Egyptian protest leader upheld

BBC World Service

The top appeals court in Egypt has upheld a 15-year jail sentence for Ahmed Douma, one of the leading figures of the uprising in 2011 that brought down President Hosni Mubarak.

Douma originally received a 25-year jail sentence on charges of clashing with security forces during a protest in 2013.

That sentence was subsequently reduced to 15 years.

This latest verdict from the court of cassation means that no further appeal can now be made.

DR Congo police arrest anti-government protesters

Africa editor, BBC World Service

Police in the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kinshasa, have arrested several people while breaking up a demonstration against the proposed appointment of a new head of the country's electoral commission.

Civil society groups and supporters of President Felix Tshisekedi's political party marched through the capital after MPs - most of whom are loyal to the former President Joseph Kabila - approved Ronsard Malonda.

Catholic and Protestant bishops have also rejected Mr Malonda's nomination.

He has for years been a senior member of the electoral commission which is widely seen as tainted, having organised chaotic and questionable polls.

The dispute is the latest sign of tension between President Tshisekedi and Mr Kabila who still has considerable political power.

One activist has tweeted a short video of the demonstration:

South Sudanese press condemn killing of young journalist

South Sudanese media advocacy groups have condemned the killing of a young journalist, Marko Agei, by unidentified gunmen in Warrap state, central South Sudan.

Marko Agei Makoor Chol, 27, was reportedly shot on Wednesday in an ambush on the road by armed youths while he was travelling to Tonj town.

Agei was a reporter for Door Radio (meaning Peace Radio in Dinka language), a local community FM station working to promote peace and reconciliation amongst the communities in Warrap state.

It was not clear whether his murder was related to his work as a journalist.

The death of Agei has angered many journalists who through their social media platforms have widely condemned his killing.

Agei, described by his colleagues as a “light spirited young man” was very much loved and respected by his colleagues and the community for the work he was doing for Door.

The Association for Media Development in South Sudan (Amdiss), an umbrella group of media proprietors in the country said in a statement that it was concerned by the “unfortunate tragic act of terror”.

Amdiss is urging the national government and the state's authorities to protect journalists across South Sudan without prejudice.
