A partial sigh of relief. 21 Chibok girls were freed from the grip of Boko Haram this Thursday, many of them with babies. Nigerian officials say the breakthrough will help in recovering the 197 girls who remain captive.

A last-ditch attempt to stop an anti-corruption report from coming out. South Africa's President Jacob Zuma files a court injunction, a day before the country's anti-corruption prosecutor steps down.

And crying out against censorship in Kenya. Filmmakers want to shut down a proposed bill that would give the country's film regulating body greater powers to monitor content.
