SUDAN: Thousands took to the streets of Khartoum today, renewing their demand for a civilian government and denouncing the country’s military rulers.
The protests came just days after the military signed a new power-sharing deal with civilian prime minister Abdalla Hamdok, after releasing him from house arrest and reinstating him as head of government.
The deal came almost a month after the generals deposed Mr Hamdok in a coup and detained dozens of politicians and activists.
EU: The European Union unveiled plans today aimed at tackling the misuse of online political advertising and helping people better understand who is responsible for such ads.
The proposals, aimed at ensuring fair and transparent polls, would also ban political targeting and “amplification techniques,” used to reach a wider audience, if advertisers use sensitive personal data such as ethnic origin, religious beliefs, or sexual orientation without a citizen’s permission.
Companies like Facebook, Google and Twitter would face fines if they failed to comply.
Somalia: A large explosion outside a school in the capital Mogadishu has killed at least eight people, including students, witnesses said.
The extremist group al-Shabab claimed responsibility for today’s attack.
The al-Qaida-linked group controls large parts of rural Somalia and continues to frustrate efforts at rebuilding the nation after three decades of conflict.
The blast sent a plume of smoke above a busy part of Mogadishu during the morning rush hour.
Germany: Official figures released today showed that the country was the latest to surpass 100,000 deaths from Covid-19.
Germany’s disease control agency said it recorded 351 additional deaths in connection with the coronavirus over the past 24 hours, taking the total toll to 100,119.
Germany is the fifth country in Europe to pass that mark, after Russia, Britain, Italy and France.
