Sudan's protesters reject call for snap election after deadly crackdown

Sudan's protest movement calls for fresh rallies and rejects the military rulers' election plan after more than 35 people were killed in what demonstrators called a "bloody massacre" by security forces. Also, the DR Congo health ministry has recorded more than 2,000 cases of Ebola since the disease broke out 10 months ago. And rights activists in Nigeria push for the end to a practice that sees young girls sold off to clear their families’ debts.
