Dozens killed after Al Shabaab attack on Mogadishu hotel

In this week's edition: Al Shabaab attack Mogadishu yet again, unemployment is on the rise in Niger among the youth; and in Rwanda, the development race isn't beneficial for everyone.


Somali extremist group Al Shabaab claims responsibility for a fatal armed raid on a hotel in Mogadishu. The siege was brought to an end by security forces but not before a car bomb rammed through the gates and gunmen opened fire.

Also, uranium-rich Niger is one of the world's poorest nations. This has led to a rate of youth unemployment that's made it easier for extremist groups to convince jobless young men to sign up to their ideology.

And for more than a decade, parts of Rwanda's capital have been sprouting new buildings. Construction sites are popping up everywhere in the rush to meet development goals, but it’s a race that's leaving some behind.
