Jihadists have killed at least 30 people and abducted women and children in a raid in northeast Nigeria's restive Borno state, a regional government spokesman said on Monday. Also, a French appeal court fines Teodorin Obiang, Equatorial Guinea's vice-president, 30 million euros for plundering state coffers to pay for fast cars and mansions in France. And finally, FRANCE 24 heads to the Sudanese city of Atbara ten months after the fall of Omar al-Bashir.
The relatives of the victims of an ambush by suspected jihadists on a humanitarian convoy in northeast Nigeria's Borno state are "in shock". Six people went missing and one driver was killed during the ambush on July 19, according to aid group Action Against Hunger.
