Somalia's president asks Al Shabaab to lay down their weapons

In tonight's edition: the new Somali president asks Al Shabaab to lay down their weapons, judges rule South Africa's planned exit of the ICC unconstitutional and displaced people in South Sudan suffer from untreated psychological disorders.


Come live the good life: Somalia’s new leader offers an olive branch to Al Shabaab militants on his inauguration. Mohamed Abdhullahi Mohamed says extremists should put down their weapons.

Also, a South African court throws up a hurdle to the government's plans to leave the International Criminal Court. Judges rule the planned exit as being unconstitutional unless it happens with parliament's backing.
