The Somali government has told media outlets to stop calling militant group al-Shabab by their name.

Instead, they say the insurgents should be referred to as 'Ugus' - it is any acronym in the Somali language which means "the Group that Massacres the Somali People". http://bbc.in/1Ib7tV0

Facebook says it will allow more websites and other online services to join its "free mobile data" Internet.org scheme. The announcement despite a backlash against the initiative.
Opponents suggest it compromises the principles of net neutrality, because it favours access to some sites and apps over others. Facebook's founder, Mark Zuckerberg, says it is unsustainable to offer the whole internet for free and that it is more important to widen internet access than defend an "extreme definition" of net neutrality. In Africa, since 2014, the project has launched in Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya and Ghana.

Facebook is to allow more organisations to join its free mobile data scheme, but net neutrality campaigners remain opposed.

Demonstrators have clashed with the security forces in the Guinean capital, Conakry, during protests over the timing of elections. At least two people were shot and wounded. Shops, schools and offices were closed. Hundreds of women chanting anti-government slogans tried to march through the central business district but were dispersed by the security forces. The opposition says changes to the electoral timetable will give the government of President Alpha Conde an unfair advantage.

South Sudan warning: The promise that South Sudan had at independence in 2011 is at "grave risk of being squandered", the US Secretary of State John Kerry has said.

Speaking in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, Mr Kerry said that there had been an "absence of leadership" in South Sudan and that those in charge had failed to act in the best interests of the people by not solving the civil conflict.
