  1. Israeli intelligence minister makes Sudan visit

    The Israeli intelligence minister, Eli Cohen, has visited Sudan to discuss implementing last year's bilateral agreement to normalise ties.

    The visit - the first of its kind - was not announced in advance.

    An Israeli spokesperson said that Mr Cohen and the Sudanese defence minister, Lt Gen Yassin Ibrahim, had signed a memorandum on diplomatic, security and economic issues.

    In a statement after his return home, Mr Cohen said he was confident his discussions had laid the foundation for bilateral co-operation and stability in the region.

  2. Arsonists target Nigerian anti-grazing campaigner

    Unidentified people have torched a house belonging to a Nigerian who campaigns against allowing cattle herders to graze for free in the south-west of the country, Oyo State police say.

    Fulani herders and their families walk for hundreds of kilometres from the extreme north to central Nigeria and beyond at least twice a year to find the best grazing land for their cattle. But this often leads to friction with the communities they visit.

    Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, had recently asked Fulani herders to leave the south-west, accusing them of kidnapping and other crimes.

    At the expiration of a seven-day ultimatum, he led a demonstration in an area where some herders were living in Oyo, and some houses and properties were burned, police say.

    Mr Igboho denied any involvement in that attack.

    Police spokesman Olugbenga Fadeyi said that in the early hours of Tuesday "hoodlums" had shot sporadically in the air before torching Mr Igboho's house in the city of Ibadan.

    He was not in the house at the time, as he had moved to a new home last year.

    On Monday, governors in the region met with the main association of cattle breeders in the country and they agreed to ban all forms of free range grazing in the region.

    Clashes between farmers and herders - over access to land and grazing rights - have killed thousands of people over the past two decades in Nigeria.

  3. Ramaphosa condemns rich nations over Covid vaccines

    The South African president, Cyril Ramaphosa, has condemned so-called vaccine nationalism by the world's wealthiest countries.

    Addressing the World Economic Forum online, he said some governments had ordered far more coronavirus vaccines than they needed.

    Without naming any countries, he appealed to them to release surplus stocks so that others could benefit.

    Last week, the World Health Organization said unequal access risked becoming a catastrophic moral failure.

    South Africa - which is the worst-hit country on the continent - is yet to receive any vaccines.

    It hopes to receive its first million doses of the AstraZeneca jab from India later this month.

    Mauritius began a nationwide Covid-19 vaccination campaign on Tuesday, with medical staff at ENT hospital, the main treatment centre, being the first to be immunised.

    Three teams of health workers have also been deployed at Victoria Hospital in the town of Quatre Bornes.

    Those vaccinated will get a second dose of the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine in about 20 days.

    Mauritius received 100,000 doses of vaccine from India on Friday.

    A batch of 240,000 doses of the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine is expected to arrive in the country by 15 February, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) representative, Laurent Musango.

    The Pfizer/BioNtech vaccines were obtained through Covax - a global initiative led by the WHO to make sure vaccines are shared fairly among all nations, rich and poor.
