Appeal hearings start in higher court in the Kingsley Sarfo rape case: Kingsley Sarfo has always denied that he was in Malmö on one of the days for which he has been found guilty of raping an underaged girl. But new evidence has emerged that shows that he was in the town on that day. He was caught on a video in a public bus. His defence attorneys want to use the new evidence to call for a not guilty judgment or a different crime description that may lead to a reduction in his sentence. Sarfo was found guilty in a magistrate's court of child rape and sentenced to a prison term of two years and eight months, deportation from Sweden for ten years and claims for 150,000 kronor.

Värmen återvänder tillfälligt: Efter en helg med åska och regn väntas sommarvärmen nu göra återkomst. På onsdag väntas det bli uppåt 35 grader varmt i Skåne. Men även Stockholm och Göteborg kan förvänta sig runt 30 grader. Längre norrut över Norrland kan det bli runt 25 grader. Några värmevarningar behöver inte utfärdas eftersom värmen förväntas bli kortvarig. -Värmen hänger eventuellt kvar under torsdagen. Men framåt fredag och helgen drar den varmaste luften bort österut och ersätts med svalare luft massa, säger Marcus Sjöstedt på SMHI.
     
A very busy Saturday in Stockholm: Today is the annual Pride Parade - the carnival like parade of gay people and their supporters through the streets of Stockholm. More than half a million spectators are expected in the inner city. The parade itself starts from Norr Mälarstrand at 13:00 hours and ends in the festival park at Östermalms IP. 45 000 have registered to take part in the parade. Today is also Stockholm Car Meet at Solvalla, from 09.00 tol 17.30. Apart from a local First Division game between BP and Dalkurd at Grimsta IP, Arsenal will play Lazio in a friendly pre-season game at Friends Arena. On the Ghanaian front, Eunice Event Group is organizing a fundraising party for diabetes and primary health care in Ghana at the beach in Vårby Gård and all are invited.
     
SMHI - Rekordvarm juli i år: Årets julimånad har generellt varit den varmaste hittills i Sverige, med rekord på flera håll. Men om denna sommar kommer att vara den varmaste över huvud taget beror på hur augusti blir. -Hade vi fått räkna in maj i den officiella sommarstatistiken skulle nog rekordet helt klart ha slagits, säger Sverker Hellström vid SMHI och konstaterar att är juni till augusti som gäller. Rekordtemperaturerna för augusti uppmättes 1997 och 2002, då det var nästan lika varmt som i juli i år.
     
How the peace was made between Eritrea and Ethiopia: The appointment in April of a new Ethiopian prime minister, 41-year-old Abiy Ahmed was vital to the peace process. On taking office he called for peace, as did his two predecessors. But in early June he went further, by offering to implement the UN peace agreement, including its controversial ruling on the location of the border, without preconditions. The political and generational shift within the ruling Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) heralded by his rise had made such fresh thinking possible. Read the rest...  
  The new Ethiopian president, Abiy Ahmed, 41 (right) brought new thinking to the peace process.
     
Ethiopia and Eritrea - peace at last: Ethiopia and Eritrea declared peace, ending a state of war that had lasted two decades. Ethiopia is to give back the town of Badme, whose disputed ownership was a cause of the war, and should gain access to Eritrea’s Red Sea ports. The deal has won plaudits for Ethiopia’s dynamic new prime minister, Abiy Ahmed, whereas Eritrea’s ultra-repressive leader, Isaias Afwerki, may find it harder to keep his grip.
