Mali's military junta announces the leaders of a new transitional government in the Sahel country, which will retain strong army links despite international pressure to appoint civilians after a coup. In Cameroon, four soldiers receive 10-year sentences for the execution-style killings of civilians. The murders sparked outrage when a video of the atrocity went viral in 2018. And finally in Botswana, the previously inexplicable deaths of hundreds of elephants may well be down to toxic algae in watering holes in the Seronga area.
