    Offenders convicted of child abduction in Algeria could be sentenced to death under a new bill approved by the National Assembly.

    The proposed new law provides harsher punishments for crimes of abduction involving children.

    The death penalty has not been formally abolished in Algeria but it has also not been implemented since 1993, and that was in a terrorism case.

    The new bill has to go through a second reading in the Council of the Nation before it becomes law.

    Ghana's President Nana Akufo-Addo has denied allegations of interference made by former anti-corruption chief Martin Amidu.

    In a statement, the president described the allegations as “errors of fact”.

    The statement added that neither the president nor any member of his government interfered with Mr Amidu's work and adequate resources were made available to enable him to do his work efficiently and effectively.

    Mr Amidu resigned as Ghana’s anti-corruption chief on Monday, citing among other things interference by President Akufo-Addo.

    Mr Amidu's appointment two years ago was greeted with high expectations as he was seen by many in Ghana as the right man to fight corruption among public officials.

    His resignation comes less than three weeks before the general election, in a country where promises to deal with corruption feature prominently during electioneering campaigns.

  3. Orcas blamed for killing South Africa's sharks

    Orcas, also known as killer whales, may be behind the disappearance of great white sharks from South Africa's coastline, a government report suggests.

    Researchers were commissioned to investigate why there has been a steep decline in sightings of the sharks since 2017.

    The researchers said they "found some evidence for a causative link between the appearances of a pod of orcas that had specialised on preying on white sharks".

    They noted that a pair of killer whales was first sighted in the area in 2015. The remains of five great white sharks killed by orcas were also discovered in the Gansbaai area in 2017.

    The decline in the sharks had originally been blamed on illegal hunting and overfishing.
