An Egyptian court Sunday postponed for a second time its verdict in the retrial of three Al-Jazeera journalists, rescheduling it to August 29 in a move that sparked widespread criticism. Another judge on Sunday said the verdict was again delayed because other defendants in the trial could not be brought to the court from their cells. Australian Peter Greste, Canadian Mohamed Fahmy and Egyptian Baher Mohamed were jailed last year for "spreading false news" in support of the blacklisted Muslim Brotherhood during coverage of the turmoil after the army ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013.
Another US hunter is suspected of killing a lion without a permit in Zimbabwe, the country's parks authority said Sunday, days after the killing of Cecil the lion by an American dentist caused global outrage. A government statement said a crackdown since Cecil's killing had led to the arrest of safari organiser Headman Sibanda on allegations of breaching hunting regulations. It said Sibanda's client was an American called Jan Casmir Sieski who travelled to Zimbabwe in April.
