    Prosecutors in France have asked magistrates to drop legal proceedings against five French military officers linked to a massacre of ethnic Tutsis during the Rwandan genocide of 1994.

    Investigators said they found no evidence of complicity by the French peacekeeping troops.

    They had been accused by survivors of abandoning Tutsis in the Bisesero region, leading to a massacre by ethnic Hutu extremists.

    In March, a major French report concluded that France bore "serious and overwhelming" responsibilities linked to the Rwandan genocide, but cleared it of complicity.

    Some 800,000 mainly ethnic Tutsis were killed in just over three months in 1994.

  5. Somalia court sentences al-Shabab commanders to death

    Somalia's north-eastern semi-autonomous Puntland regional state has sentenced five al-Shabab militants to death.

    The five convicts were identified as Mohamed Hashi Mumin (Abu-dayib), Abdulkadir Ahmed Ummal (Abu-Abdalla), Mohamed Ali Awke (Jeri), Mohamed Abdullahi Ayanle (Abbeyle) and Qasim Jaylani Al-Turabi, according to Radio Dalsan's website said.

    The chief of the Puntland military court, Colonel Ali Shire, said the five were found guilty of carrying out attacks targeting government officials.

    The convicts have 30 days to appeal against the sentencing.

    On 23 April, the same court sentenced eight al-Shabab militants to death for carrying out killings and explosions in parts of Mudug Region.

    The Algerian president, Abdelmadjid Tebboune, has urged his government to open a dialogue with different social partners, as unrest continues over the economic crisis in the country.

    A government statement said Mr Tebboune had told his cabinet to engage more widely to find ways to improve the lives of employees in the education and health sectors.

    Algeria is preparing for legislative elections in June, against a background of regular street protests over the government's failure to address unemployment of 15% soaring prices and food shortages.
