By Ange Aboa ABIDJAN (Reuters) - At least 21 children have been kidnapped in Ivory Coast since December and most have been found dead with their bodies mutilated, authorities said, in a wave of ritual killings some residents fear may be linked to upcoming elections. Police chief Brindou Mbia said security forces had been placed on high alert after the spate of child abductions but he declined to speculate what was behind the killings. In the commercial capital Abidjan, where at least three children have been abducted, residents expressed concern for the safety of their young ones. Many said the kidnappings were likely linked to ritual killings by corrupt businessmen and politicians, who used body part in ceremonies supposed to confer supernatural powers.

File photo of delegates celebrating as U.S. President Obama addresses final session of Democratic National Convention in CharlotteBy Andy Sullivan WASHINGTON, Jan 28 (Reuters) - As Washington has tightened its belt in recent years, the budget cuts have sliced most deeply in states where President Obama is unpopular, according to an analysis of federal spending by Reuters. Between the 2009 and 2013 fiscal years, funding for a wide swath of discretionary grant programs, from Head Start preschool education to anti drug initiatives, fell by an average of 40 percent in Republican-leaning states like Texas and Mississippi. By contrast, funding to Democratic-leaning states such as California and politically competitive swing states like Ohio dropped by 25 percent. Though Congress sets overall spending levels, the Obama administration determines where much of that money ends up.

More than 8 billion kwacha worth of maize, rice, groundnuts and cotton was lost in the flooding in the country primarily dependent on agriculture, Mutharika said in his state of the nation speech. Mutharika said $81 million was needed to address the needs of the 638,000 people affected by the floods that have also damaged more than 230 schools.
