South Africa misses deadline to meet AGOA deal conditions

Also, the UN says it will need 20 billion dollars in aid money this year, an amount that's ten times what was needed a decade ago. Many of the countries needing help are in Africa.
And after years of conflict, Somalia's economy may be turning a corner, particularly when it comes to its property markets.
