    Chad’s president of three decades dies of wounds on the front lines of a battle with rebels.  Also the Mozambican town of Palma was retaken by the army but militants remain a threat and locals’ flight southwards continues. And  there’s a major step forward for the protection of women and children in Gabon, as customary marriages are finally recognised by the state.
