Sudan's President Omar Hassan al-Bashir attends the opening meeting of the Arab Summit in Sharm el-SheikhSudan's President Omar Hassan al-Bashir at the last minute cancelled a trip to Indonesia for a summit this week, a government official said, in what would have been his first trip outside of Africa or the Middle East in nearly four years. Bashir's plan to attend the Asia-African leaders conference in Jakarta sparked protests among rights groups, who want the president to be arrested. The International Criminal Court (ICC) issued an arrest warrant in 2009 accusing him of war crimes and crimes against humanity related to the conflict in Darfur. Indonesia is not an ICC member.

As Britain heads to national elections in May, high prices have reshaped the housing market, doubling the proportion of people who rent privately and dissuading many young people from saving for a home. Britain's main political parties have different policies to fix the problem: CONSERVATIVE PARTY Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservative Party plans to expand a "Right to Buy" programme, first introduced by Margaret Thatcher in 1980, to allow people living in social housing to purchase their homes at a discount. The scheme will enable people to buy social housing owned by non-profit organisations and follows a "Help to Buy" subsidy to help people buy houses without large deposits.

Former Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi sits behind bars with other Muslim Brotherhood members at a court in the outskirts of CairoBy Shadi Bushra CAIRO (Reuters) - Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Mursi will stand in a court cage on Tuesday as a judge announces his fate nearly three years after he was declared Egypt's first freely elected president. The fall of veteran autocrat Hosni Mubarak in 2011 paved the way for what was unthinkable for decades – the Brotherhood ruling the most populous Arab country. The man Mursi appointed army chief, General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, toppled him in 2013 after mass protests against his rule and then launched a tough crackdown on Islamists. Egypt’s deep state apparatus – the Interior Ministry, intelligence services and army – soon put the Brotherhood on the defensive once again.
