A Palestinian supporter of the Hamas Islamist movement holds a mock rocket during a rally on August 29, 2014 in the West Bank town of HebronTwenty-six Americans filed a complaint on Tuesday to the US Attorney General requesting the justice ministry prosecute Hamas leaders for "war crimes," the Israeli legal group representing them said. Shurat Hadin announced the move a day before the Palestinians officially become members of the International Crime Court, where they hope to see Israeli officials prosecuted for similar offences. We need to fight back," said Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, the director of the non-governmental organisation. She alleged that "the Palestinians committed war crimes," and stressed that courts other than the ICC had "the authority to try them, including in the United States".

Supporters of All Progressives Congress (APC) celebrate on March 31, 2015 in LagosMuhammadu Buhari on Tuesday became Nigeria's president elect after defeating Goodluck Jonathan in the first democratic change of power ever in Africa's most populous nation. Thousands spilled onto the streets of the north's biggest city, Kano, in celebration, shouting his campaign slogan "Sai Buhari" ("Only Buhari") as he took an unassailable lead with one state to declare. The election was hit by glitches to new voter technology and claims of irregularities, having been played out against a backdrop of fears of deadly Boko Haram violence and poll-related clashes. "This is the first democratic change ever in Nigeria," Anas Galadima told AFP, as thousands thronged the APC headquarters in the capital Abuja, dancing and banging drums.
