Date created : Latest update :
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.
A matter of urgency: the UN declares that parts of South Sudan are experiencing famine and warns that by July, half of the population will be without a reliable source of food.
Also, Polisario Front officials blame Morocco after a UN envoy to the disputed Western Sahara quits after years of trying to resolve a standoff over the territory.
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.
