22 July 2015 (IRIN ), In South Africa, asylum seekers and refugees in need of documentation often have no choice but to pay for it.

14 July 2015 (IRIN ), Burundi’s political crisis is centred on a leader who is refusing to leave office after almost 10 years. The man sent in to mediate has been in power for almost 30.
