Explosion, fire in crowded area of Nigeria LAGOS: An explosion hit an area believed to be storing fireworks in the Nigerian economic capital Lagos on Wednesday, causing a fire that has begun to spread in the densely packed neighbourhood, an official said.   It was not immediately clear whether there were any casualties and details of the incident were sketchy.   A strong explosion could be heard in parts of the sprawling city followed by smoke. An official with the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) said ...
Cameroon archbishop calls same-sex marriage crime against humanity YAOUNDE: One of Cameroon's most senior Christian leaders on Tuesday called same-sex marriages a "crime against humanity", ramping up anti-gay rhetoric in the Central African state.   As in most African nations, homosexuality is illegal in Cameroon. But a number of incidents have highlighted the clash between a largely conservative culture backed by draconian law and youth for some of whom it is less of an issue.   "Marriage of persons of the same sex is a serious crime ...

Central African rebels seize another town: military BANGUI: Rebels waging an offensive in the Central African Republic seized the major north-central town of Kaga-Bandoro on Tuesday, a military source said.   "The rebels came into town in vehicles and on motorcycles, and started using heavy weapons to fire at strategic points: a military base, police stations, the customs office.   Members of the Central African armed forces resisted briefly then began to retreat towards Sibut," about 130 kilometres (80 miles) south, the source said.   Kago-Bandoro is the fourth regional capital to ...
