The guerrilla military campaign in Syria significantly escalated in July this year when Russia and China vetoed for the third time a proposed UN Security Council resolution against Syria.

Armed Syrian opposition forces entered the two main cities of Damascus and Aleppo to mount attacks and seized a number of border control posts.

A bomb in Damascus killed four of the Syrian government’s top defence personnel, including the Defence Minister and his Deputy.

Three casualties of the struggle for Kenyan national liberation have taken their legal fight for justice back to the High Court in London.

The three, Paulo Muoka Nzili, Jane Muthoni Mara and Wambugu Wa Nyingi are pursuing their claims for compensation for their illegal detention and torture at the hands of the British colonial government. Africans have long demanded an admission of guilt and apology for the atrocities committed by the British authorities.
