Trial of ex-ANC youth leader Julius Malema postponed

Libya's top security official in Benghazi has survived a car bomb attack, while troops have been deployed in Tripoli, following violence which claimed dozens of lives over the weekend. Meanwhile, a South African court has postponed the graft trial of ANC defector Julius Malema, a move which could see him challenge his former allies at elections in 2014. Finally, Francis Collomp, the French engineer who escaped his captors in Nigeria, has arrived home in France.
