Front page from a local newspaper announcing the death of Colombian Nobel Prize winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, in Cali, Colombia, on April 17, 2014Tributes poured in Friday for Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the Nobel-winning Colombian author whose "magical realism" told epic stories of love, family and dictatorship in Latin America. Known affectionately as "Gabo," the author of "One Hundred Years of Solitude" and "Love in the Time of Cholera" was one of the world's the most popular Latin American novelists and godfather of a literary movement that witnessed a continent in turmoil. The long-time journalist befriended Cuban leader Fidel Castro, was once punched by fellow Nobel laureate Mario Vargas Llosa and joked that he wrote to make his friends love him.

Burundi's President Pierre Nkurunziza attends the opening of a coffee conference in the capital BujumburaBy Patrick Nduwimana BUJUMBURA (Reuters) - Burundi, locked in its worst political crisis since its civil war ended in 2005, has created a reconciliation commision that opposition parties say will shield the ruling party from accountability for past crimes. The ruling CNDD-FDD party voted late on Thursday to launch the commission and let President Pierre Nkurunziza pick its members, who are to establish the truth about conflicts wracking Burundi since independence from Belgium in 1962. Lawmakers from the CNDD-FDD's junior coalition partner parties, Uprona and Frodebu, boycotted the vote, a reflection of sharp differences over proposed constitutional changes they say will concentrate power in the ruling party's hands. Concern over the constitutional changes - which could upset the volatile country's delicate ethnic power balance and allow Nkurunziza to run for a third term - prompted the United States and the United Nations to warn against them last week.
