By Joe Bavier ABID (Reuters) - A senior Ivory Coast army officer is breaking a diamond embargo and may be using profits to buy arms, U.N. experts have found, dealing a potentially embarrassing blow to government efforts to have the ban lifted. Ivory Coast is the only country in the world still subject to a U.N.-imposed ban on diamond exports but it received a clean bill of health in November from the Kimberley Process - the body tasked with preventing the sale of so called "blood diamonds" from fuelling armed conflicts. But U.N. experts, charged with monitoring compliance with a sanctions regime including an arms embargo, said diamonds are being exported from Ivory Coast in breach of the ban. "The measures and restrictions imposed by the (Security) Council ... still do not prevent the illicit trafficking of Ivorian rough diamonds," read the report released on Tuesday.

Rwanda's President Paul Kagame arrives for the extraordinary session of the African Union's Assembly of Heads of State and Government on the case of African Relationship with the International Criminal Court (ICC), in Ethiopia's capital Addis AbabaBy Richard Valdmanis BOSTON (Reuters) - Rwandan President Paul Kagame said on Tuesday it was too early to say whether he will seek a third term as head of the east African state, adding "whatever will happen, we'll have an explanation." Articles in pro-government newspapers in recent years have raised the prospect of him staying on after his mandate expires in 2017, a move that would anger his critics and require a change to the constitution. Whatever will happen, we’ll have an explanation." He was responding to a student's question about how he imagined his political role in Rwanda after his term ends. He accused the "international community" of destabilizing neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo by allowing people who committed the Rwandan genocide to later escape into Congo's eastern hills and giving them guns. Millions have died in eastern Congo, home to myriad rebel groups, since the end of Rwanda's genocide.

Members of National League for democracy (NLD) prepare a memorial ceremony for Win Tin next to his portrait in Yangon on April 21, 2014Hundreds of mourners gathered Wednesday to mark the funeral of Win Tin, a former journalist and giant of Myanmar's pro-democracy movement, in an outpouring of grief for one of the country's best loved champions of freedom. A memorial ceremony in a church in the nation's commercial hub Yangon was a sea of blue as activists and political figures donned the prison uniform colour in tribute to Win Tin, who was Myanmar's longest-serving political detainee under the former junta. The co-founder of Myanmar's opposition party along with Aung San Suu Kyi, Win Tin continued to wear a blue shirt after his release in 2008. He died in hospital in Yangon early Monday at the age of 84 after suffering a range of health problems.
