In Libya, a crackdown on trafficking gangs operating out of the city of Sabrata has started to bear fruit. Italian authorities say they've noticed a marked drop in the number of arrivals dangerously smuggled in from the other side of the Mediterranean.

Also, a property boom in Cape Town has seen once-neglected neighbourhoods transformed into trendy enclaves. But as prices go up, long-term renters are being pushed out.

And in Ivory Coast, the start of the academic year is just around the corner but thousands of students are forced to sleep in corridors, toilets and lecture theatres. This comes years after halls of residence meant to house them were shut by the government.
