Yahya Jammeh chooses exile in Equitorial Guinea: Gambia's former president, Yahya Jammeh, has arrived in Equitorial Guinea where he will stay his days in exile. He agreed to leave the country after assurance from ECOWAS leaders that no measures will be taken against him and he will be free to return to the country. The news of the ex-president's departure was greeting with jubilation in the streets of the capital, Banjul. 51-year old Jammeh was absolute ruler of Gambia since he made a coup 22 years ago. He declared the tiny nation an Islamic state and took it out of the Commonwealth and the International Court of Justice. His official designation, when in power, was His Excellency Sheikh Professor Alhaji Dr Yahya A.J.J. Jammeh Babili Mansa.

African Cup of Nations - Ghana into next round as Asamoah Gyan makes record: Asamoah Gyan became the all time top African Cup goal king in Ghana as he scored the only goal of the game against Mali that saw Ghana make it into the 1/8th finals with one game to spare. It happened in the 21st minute of the game when Jordan Ayew clipped in a good corner from the right which Gyan met with a great header into the far corner of the net. It was Gyan's first goal of the tournament and his eighth in Cup history - one ahead of Osei Kofi and Abedi Ayew. With Ghana playing at least two more games in this tournament, Gyan has the chance to increase his record. Ghana's last group game will be against old rivals, Egypt, on Wednesday. Egypt beat Uganda, 1-0, in the day's other group match and will need to beat Ghana on Wednesday to win the group.
Difficult to repatriate condemned foreign criminals from Sweden: Nearly 75 percent of criminals condemned to be repatriated from Sweden are set free after serving their sentences. If those so condemned come from a country which is at war or if the home country refuses to accept them, the police in Sweden can do nothing but release them. Syria is one example of a country to which the Swedish authorities will not repatriate a criminal who has served his sentence. Even those criminals who are condemned for repatriation to countries that will accept them are set free after they have served their Swedish sentences.

Sweden - Interior minister calls for sharper ID demands of asylum seekers: Anders Ygeman, Interior Minister, has said Sweden makes too weak identification demands of asylum seekers in the country. He thinks the demands must be sharpened. According to him, the burden of proof of identity must be on the asylum seeker who comes to the country without any identitfication papers. Sixty percent of the asylum seekers who arrived in the country this year showed some form of identity papers in their applications for asylum. Ygeman says it should be made more difficult for those who do not have any identification papers to be granted asylum and thinks the rules have been differently interpreted in Swedish courts.
