Chadian forces have killed 120 militants from Boko Haram in a battle in the north of neighbouring Cameroon that began when the insurgents attacked its troops, the army said in a statement on Saturday, adding that three of its soldiers were killed.

UN set to reject Andrew Lansley for key humanitarian role 1.2.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Britain’s diplomatic status is threatened as critics say traditional UK humanitarian affairs role should not go to ‘failed politicians’ David Cameron’s hopes of parachuting senior Tory Andrew Lansley into a top UN humanitarian role have hit snags amid an increasingly bitter “jobs for cronies” row that threatens to impact on Britain’s diplomatic standing. The prime minister is keen on Lansley becoming the next UN under-secretary general for humanitarian affairs and emergency relief , a position that traditionally goes to a Briton. But sources familiar with the process say the former health secretary is no longer a frontrunner, and it may go to someone from another country when Baroness Amos steps down next month. This would be a major humiliation for Cameron and a diplomatic snub for Britain, which has positioned itself as a champion of disaster ...

Emma Graham-Harrison was one of the first reporters on the scene The concrete eagle in what used to be Freedom Square still surveys Kobani imperiously. But around it almost nothing stands. Buildings have vanished during months of heavy shelling, replaced by snarls of steel and rubble, and the yawning craters left by US air strikes. One side street is blocked by the bodies of Isis fighters, rotting where they fell – a pile of bones marked only by a foul smell. On the muddy track that marks where another road led, a series of tattered sniper screens veils the destruction of the schools and homes where sharpshooters had ...
