World Food Programme airdrops food rations into South Sudan

In this week's edition: famine hits South Sudan; the UN envoy to Western Sahara quits; and women in Algeria continue to play football despite social stigma.

And brushing aside gender stereotypes and even militant threats: we meet one female Algerian international who'll let nothing get in the way of her love of the game.
