Hague court upholds Charles Taylor's 50-year sentence

A UN special court rejects the appeal of Liberia's ex-president against his conviction for crimes against humanity - Charles Taylor still faces a half century in jail.

Finally, fresh protests break out in Sudan as the death toll mounts after four days of fuel subsidy riots.
