Yahya Jammeh accused of ordering 50 migrant deaths in 2005

Rights groups seek the prosecution of Yahya Jammeh over migrants allegedly killed by a death squad on the orders of Gambia's ex-president. In Burundi, we hear the concerns of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights about Thursday's referendum that could extend the president's rule until 2034. And the ANC proposition to change the constitution to allow land expropriation without compensation has led to a rash of land occupations by slum dwellers forced out after their homes were destroyed.
