Seven out of eight babies are delivered stillborn in a single night at a Zimbabwean hospital. Maternity staff say that things have become increasingly dire in the country as healthcare is impacted by an ongoing nurses' strike. Also, the UN refugee agency urges African nations to protect migrants travelling within their borders, as a new UN report warns that migrants face violence by African officials. And as Muslims around the world prepare to celebrate Eid-al-Adha, festivities in Morocco are muted in light of extra coronavirus precautions.
