Gambia is the third African country in a fortnight to say it wants out of the ICC...this as Burundi claims to have formally informed the world court of its intention to quit.

More clashes break out between police and protesters calling for the prices of education to fall in South Africa. The country's finance minister pledges more money for universities but warns of the financial toll the protests are taking on the nation.
