A Mountie surveys the damage on a street in Fort McMurray AlbertaBy Rod Nickel and Liz Hampton CONKLIN/LAC LA BICHE (Reuters) - A convoy of stranded residents drove back through the Canadian oil town of Fort McMurray, escaping the fire-ravaged region under police escort on Friday, taking the only route out as the massive wildfire spread. Fire enveloped Fort McMurray, burning some 210,000 acres (85,000 hectares) in the area, forcing 88,000 people to flee on Tuesday and Wednesday, and threatening two oil sands sites south of the city. With helicopters overhead and police roadblocks at every turnoff through on the road, the convoy did not stop until vehicles passed the mandatory evacuation zone, south of Fort McMurray, a Royal Canadian Mounted Police spokesman said.

Visitors pose for pictures against Table Mountain at a viewing site in Cape TownBy Stella Mapenzauswa JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - A weak rand and a government U-turn on restrictive visa rules are helping South Africa's tourism sector to stage a strong recovery after a shaky 2015. Foreign visitors dropped nearly 7 percent last year, partly due to new visa regulations requiring children to travel with full birth certificates and visitors from some countries, including China, to appear in person at a South African embassy, often requiring lengthy journeys. The government relaxed those rules in October, and Tourism Minister Derek Hanekom said on Tuesday that the industry, which was also hit by health fears sparked by an Ebola outbreak in West Africa last spring, was on the mend.
