Civil war: ECOWAS court awards N88bn damages against FG.
Wearing military fatigues and makeup to appear paler, a group of Libyan students performed the roles of 'dead soldiers', figures from a play exploring the tragedies and deceptions of war, in Libya's coastal city of Misrata. Published in 2017 by Saudi author Yasser al-Madkhali, the play 'Victory or death or Both' was revisited by Libyan director Rabih al-Ubaidi.
Since February 24, Ukraine has been putting up fierce resistance against Russia: on the ground, but also in the digital sphere. FRANCE 24 spoke with Ukraine's Deputy Minister of Digital Transformation, George Dubinskiy. He explained that Ukraine, which suffered several large-scale cyberattacks long before February 24, has been in a digital war against Moscow "since 2014" and is defending not only its land borders, but also digital ones.
Russia's war in Ukraine is derailing the global economy's recovery from the pandemic. The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) is the latest to slash its forecast for economic growth, warning of high inflation and a possible food crisis. Also in the show: India's central bank raises interest rates for the second time in less than a month, while Turkey's government refuses to do so, despite spiralling inflation.
More than 14 million people have fled their homes since Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the United Nations (UN) says. Almost seven million left for neighbouring countries, while eight million people are displaced inside Ukraine itself.
In an online video, a train is seen transporting tanks. Claims on social media have suggested that these images show Finland sending military equipment towards the Russian border. The video was seen by some as a sign of imminent conflict and an escalation of the war in Ukraine. FRANCE 24's Georgina Robertson and Sophie Samaille take a look at the video in more detail.
In an interview with DW, a close friend of Brahim Saadoun said he has proof he is "a soldier of the Ukrainian army." The UN has said that the death sentence against him and two other British men could be a war crime.
Even as the war goes on, Ukrainians are tracking down war criminals. Kyiv authorities say they know of 3,000 war crimes and have 300 possible culprits' names from their region alone. They say international cooperation will be required to bring these Russian soldiers to justice.
Would Beijing back away from its strategic partnership with Moscow if the war in Ukraine goes nuclear?
The court fined the foundation that owns Wikpedia for refusing to remove articles about Russia's invasion of Ukraine, war crimes in Bucha and related topics.
Ukrainian opera singer Sergiy Anastasyev, who had to flee the war in his home country, now lives in Bonn, Germany. He talked to DW about how singing has become therapy for him, and how he longs to return to Ukraine.
In Russia, critics of the war in Ukraine are increasingly being reported to the police. DW spoke with Russians who have been betrayed by their own relatives, friends, colleagues and neighbors.
The conflict has cut off supplies from Ukraine's ports, which once exported vast amounts of cooking oil as well as cereals such as maize and wheat. This has reduced the global supply and caused the price of alternatives to soar. Global food prices are almost 30% higher than the same time last year, according to the UN.
