Our reports:

>> Cuba is known for its high-quality health system and the small country has submitted two Covid-19 vaccines for international authorisation. On the ground, health workers have already been receiving the first jabs. Ed Augustin reports.

>> In Sudan, it's been two years since Omar al-Bashir, the man who'd ruled the country for three decades, finally stepped down in the wake of deadly protests. Our correspondents Élodie Cousin and Maria Gert Niculescu report on the families still searching for their loved ones who went missing.

 >> In Greece, migration continues to put pressure on the island of Lesbos. Five months ago, a fire destroyed its huge Moria camp. But now a new one – the largest in Europe – has sprung up to replace it. Mortaza Behboudi, Alexia Kefalas and Sudha Nair report.

>> Finally, one strategic location over the centuries has been the British overseas territory of Gibraltar. It's now something of a test case in the fight against Covid-19, after the UK sent enough vaccine doses to inoculate all of its 35,000 residents. Anaïs Guérard and Sarah Morris report.
