Children swim on October 31, 2014 in the pool of a destroyed hotel destroyed in the center of OuagadougouTwo French special forces soldiers accused of sexually abusing children in Burkina Faso returned home Thursday and have been taken into custody, said a legal source. The men, accused of sexually assaulting two girls aged three and five at a hotel swimming pool, were repatriated after being questioned by French and Burkinabe military police in the capital Ouagadougou. France has reacted swiftly to the accusations in stark contrast to another alleged child sex abuse scandal involving French troops in Central African Republic that only came to light after it was leaked to the British press.

MANILA (Reuters) - At least 36 people died and dozens were missing on Thursday when a ferry carrying 189 passengers and crew capsized off the central Philippines, the coast guard and police said on Thursday. Scores, sometimes hundreds, of people die each year in ferry accidents in the Philippines, an archipelago of 7,100 islands with a notoriously poor record for maritime safety. Overcrowding is common, and many of the vessels are in bad condition. (Reporting by Rosemarie Francisco; Editing by Nick Macfie)
