Oscar Pistorius trial: Steenkamps 'rejected blood money' E-mail

Athlete Oscar Pistorius offered a large cash sum to the parents of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp after he killed her - but it was rejected as "blood money", a South African court has heard.

Pistorius's offer of $34,000 (ÂŁ21,000) was revealed by prosecutor Gerrie Nel during his sentencing hearing.

Earlier, a defence witness told the court that Pistorius would be physically at risk if sent to prison.

He has been found guilty of culpable homicide, but cleared of murder.

The police officers fired for a kiss E-mail

When is it OK to kiss a colleague? Two Tanzanian police officers, whose kiss was widely shared on social media, have prompted a discussion about just that - and both have also lost their jobs.

A relationship with a colleague can throw up any number of complications, but the two young police officers in the picture may not have thought it would end their careers. The photograph - taken in Kagera, north west Tanzania - shows the pair kissing whilst dressed in their work uniforms, and was considered grounds for dismissal. Residents of the country have taken to social media to voice their dismay.

Arrested and humiliated for Ebola; tested positive for cold - Story of Ghanaian student in Czech Republic E-mail

A Ghanaian student in Czech Republic arrested, forced into a suffocating black polythene bag, wheeled away in a trolley and dumped into a bus has tested negative for ebola, the Ghana Mission in the Czech Republic has confirmed.

The student, whose identity is yet to be disclosed, was isolated for several hours in what appears to be an excruciating, thoroughly humiliating episode as Czech authorities desperately take precautionary measures against ebola.

The student was only suffering from common cold, the Health Ministry at the Czech Republic stated.

He had successfully been screened at the Czech Airport on Saturday night and allowed to go through, only to be picked up again at the train station by a man in hazard garments and taken through the dehumanizing episode.

Malala pleads for Nigerian abducted girls E-mail

Malala Yousafzai has called on Nigeria to intensify efforts to free 219 schoolgirls who were abducted by Islamist militants six months ago.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner said campaigners needed to raise their voices "louder than ever" to demand the freedom of the girls.

The Boko Haram group sparked global outrage when it seized the girls.

Foreign governments including the US and China, have sent experts to Nigeria to help track them down.

“Demonic” Ebola targeting Ghana by November – Archbishop Duncan Williams E-mail

Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams has revealed that the deadly Ebola virus is a “demonic” spiritual plague that has marked out Ghana as its next stop.

“…The bottom line is that there are people who want to see the virus in this country and they want our name on CNN. We cancel it by the blood of Jesus. That is not to say that we are better than those countries. We are not. But let’s also pray that the plague will cease in those countries…I believe in what I’ve seen and I believe in what I’ve heard and I stand by it…Spiritually, I tell you that the plague, whether it’s a conspiracy of White man, Black man I don’t care. I just know that this thing is demonic. Anything that kills people the way it’s killing people is demonic. I don’t care what is behind it, but I know something; when I lift up prayer, there has to be divine resolution to the matter. Because prayer knows no boundaries and prayer knows no limit…”
