Dewani Judge Questions Prosecution's Case — The judge in the Shrien Dewani murder trial bombarded the prosecution counsel with questions which he struggled to answer as the State insisted the trial should go ahead. Judge Jeanette Traverso wanted to know whether the 34-year-old entrepreneur would have gone along with a murder plot which was so muddled and "loose" in its conception.

Dewani Defence Urges Judge To Throw Out Case — The defence lawyer for British businessman Shrien Dewani has been arguing there is little credible evidence to convict his client of the murder of his wife Anni whilst on their honeymoon in South Africa. Mr Dewani's lawyers have filed an application under Section 174 of the South African Criminal Procedure Act to have the case dismissed on the grounds of lack of evidence.

Reeva's Parents A Picture Of Grief At Trial — The elderly parents of Reeva Steenkamp have been the picture of pain and grief each time they've arrived at the High Court in Pretoria.

Ebola: Deaths Hidden As Fear Grips Liberia — Liberia's few ebola treatment centres are overwhelmed with the sick and dying - with patients sharing beds and the dead laying near the desperately ill. The country has accounted for more than half of the world's deaths from the latest ebola outbreak in West Africa and despite assurances from the President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf that it is under control, evidence on the ground seen by Sky News appears to suggest otherwise.

Rwanda Militia Commander 'Tired Of War' — The commander of one of the Rwandan militia hiding out in the eastern Congolese mountains has told Sky News his men will not disarm without guarantees for their safety. Colonel Bonheur - as he called himself but which is almost certainly not his real name - said his band of soldiers would be forced to continue fighting unless a political solution can be found.
