One of the world’s most wanted human traffickers is arrested in Sudan. Eritrean Kidane Zekarias Habtemariam is accused of leading a criminal organization that kidnaps, extorts and kills migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea. UN intelligence reports suggest M23 rebels in eastern DR Congo have not withdrawn from key areas around Lake Kivu. And a good year for African startups – they raised a record €5 billion last year… but the future may not be entirely bright.
