'Every time someones opens the door, we think it's my father'

Lebanon marks one month since devastating blast that killed nearly 200 people
People in Lebanon have observed a minute's silence a month after a massive explosion killed almost 200 people in the capital, Beirut. The blast left about 300,000 people homeless. Tatiana Hasrouty is a law student, who spoke to the BBC shortly after the explosion. At that point, her family was looking for her missing father - Ghassan Hasrouty - who worked at the port. Just over two weeks later, they got the news that they'd feared.

Nigeria gets more time to appeal $10bn gas fine

BBC News, Abuja

A London court has granted Nigeria more time to appeal against a nearly $10bn (£7.5bn) fine in a case with a UK-based company in relation to a major botched project to develop a gas processing plant.

Nigeria had sought permission to appeal against the multi-billion dollar fine despite missing the original appeal deadline last year. The court says it can now file its challenge but has not specified any time frame.

In 2010 a deal to develop a gas-processing plant was awarded to Process Industrial and Developments (P&ID) but it later collapsed.

The UK-based company had said the contract collapsed because Nigeria did not honour its part of the deal - leading to a legal battle and a fine against Nigeria in 2013.

The fine was originally $6.6bn but interest has accrued in the seven years since.

Nigeria’s Justice Minister Abubakar Malami told the BBC the country will continue to pursue the case to ensure the fine is overturned.
