The South African Government has said Nelson Mandela, formerly a President of the country, has been readmitted to hospital. A press release from the Government said it was due to the return of a lung infection Mandela has experienced before.

Mandela was taken into the hospital just prior to 0000 SAST (0200 UTC) today. Current South African President Jacob Zuma made an “appeal to the people of South Africa and the world to pray for our beloved Madiba and his family and to keep them in their thoughts,” he said, adding: “We have full confidence in the medical team and know that they will do everything possible to ensure recovery”. The statement did not disclose much more detail other than the request from the President Zuma’s office “once again for understanding and privacy in order to allow space to the doctors to do their work.”

Mandela had been given an arranged medical check-up earlier this month. The former South African President has been hospitalised at least four times since the start of 2011. The last time Mandela was hospitalised was on December 8 last year, when he received hospital treatment for gallstones and a lung infection. He was discharged eighteen days later, on December 26.

South African Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius has been granted bail today after a four day hearing and a week in custody. He faces murder charges over the fatal shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

The Magistrate Desmond Nair said that he did not believe Pistorius would try to flee the country or that he had a “propensity for violence”. A court date was set for the June 4 and bail was set at 1 million rand ($112,803, £73,000). He was told to hand over his passport, live at a discrete address, not drink alcohol or take drugs and report to a police station twice a week in Pretoria.

Mr Nair took near to two hours to deliver his judgement. He also criticised the testimony of Detective Hilton Botha for not having collected crucial information and having possibly contaminated the scene.

Oscar Pistorius’s family and supporters in the court cheered as the magistrate announced his decision. Outside the court, his uncle Arnold Pistorius said in a statement, “As a family, we know Oscar’s version of what happened that tragic night and we know that is the truth and that will prevail in the coming court cases,”. A spokesperson for the Steenkamp family said, “We’re not sure what to feel in the case. We just want to know the truth, and whatever happens it’s not going to bring Reeva back.”

Oscar Pistorius is charged with murder over the fatal shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, 29. He says he shot her after mistaking her for an intruder on February 14. Steenkamp’s funeral was held on Tuesday – the day of the first court hearing. The model was cremated in her home town of Port Elizabeth.

Pistorius won gold medals at the Paralympic Games in Athens in 2004, in Beijing in 2008 and in London in 2012. At the 2012 Olympic Games he became the first amputee to run in the able-bodied category, reaching the semi-final of the 400m.

Malian forces backed by French troops regained control of the rebel stronghold of Gao on Saturday as they advance nearer to Timbuktu in northern Mali. This comes after the town of Hombori which is approximately 160km from Gao which was heavily bombed by French air strikes destroying ammunition dumps and fuel stores and captured on Friday.

Timbuktu has served as a centre of Islamic education for hundreds of year and has been under control of the rebel forces for approximately 10 months.The French Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said that the French-backed Malian forces still “face a lot of work” but should be “near Timbuktu soon”.

Islamist militants, had earlier in the week destroyed a bridge that connected eastern Mali to the neighbouring country of Niger from where African intervention forces had been expected to launch an attack on Islamist positions. The bridge which is in the town of Tassiga offers the shortest route between Niger and Gao, however the Malian forces managed to regain control after French air strikes.

A British military surveillance aircraft was also sent to Mali to assist the French intervention forces with their attack on Islamist positions on Friday. British Defence Secretary Philip Hammond said that the Sentinel R1 aircraft had “proven its worth in Libya and on an ongoing basis for counter-insurgency in Afghanistan” and will be deployed to Senegal and onto Mali.

Opposition activists in Syria say nine or more people have died as the result of a car bomb explosion at a fuel station in the Barzeh al-Balad district of Damascus, the capital of the country, according to BBC News Online. News agency Reuters has placed the minimum death toll at eleven while also reporting at least forty injuries. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights believes an increase in the number of fatalities recorded is probable.

At the time of the incident, a large number of people were waiting at the station to collect petrol. Activists say Syria is short of patrol because of the ongoing civil war, which started during 2011.

An unidentified activist told Reuters the fuel station was “usually packed even when it has no fuel. There are lots of people who sleep there overnight, waiting for early morning fuel consignments”. The same person reported witnessing the bodies of burned people being placed onto ambulances, as well as those with wounds and severe burns, and vehicles the blast had destroyed being towed away. The activist, a local resident, said security workers at the station then told him to leave the scene.

North Korea has fired a long range rocket. The launch occurred at 9:51 a.m. local time according to South Korea‘s Yonhap news agency, two days after the country said it might delay the launch till as late as December 29 to repair a “technical deficiency” in the rocket.

Yonhap also reports pieces of the rocket fell into the sea near the coast of Philippines, but it’s not yet known if the rocket was successful at launching the satellite. The rocket was reportedly supposed to carry a satellite into space, but some governments say it’s an attempt to test a missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.

This is the second long range rocket North Korea has fired this year. In April, the country failed at an attempt to launch a multistage rocket into orbit in honor of the anniversary of Kim Il-sung’s 100th birthday. The government publicly acknowledged its rocket broke up in flight over ocean waters before ever making it into orbit.

At least 50 children have died as the result of a train and bus collision in the Asyut Governorate of Egypt. Governor Yehya Keshk has also said thirteen children were injured in the crash near the city of Manfalut, approximately 230 miles or 350 kilometres south of the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

The bus was transporting approximately sixty pre-school children, with the fatalities aged between four and six, according to BBC News Online. Senior Health Ministry official Mamdouh al-Weshahi reported “several deaths and injuries among the pupils”, who “are being counted and taken to hospitals”.

Speaking from Cairo, Al-Jazeera reporter Sherin Tadros said it was “difficult for the rescuers to operate in the area” as the seriousness of the accident meant “only 22 bodies or so came out in full and the rest are in [pieces]”.

Dr. Mohamed Samir reported witness accounts of the incident to Reuters news agency. “They told us the barriers were open when the bus crossed the tracks and the train collided with it,” he said.

State media has said, in the aftermath of this incident the Egyptian Railway Authority head and transport minister Rashad al-Metini have resigned.
