Shock twist to electoral saga splits opposition, with power-sharing agreement expected Israel’s main opposition party has split after its leader, Benny Gantz, was elected speaker of parliament with the support of his rivals, including Benjamin Netanyahu, in a stunning plot twist to a year-long political crisis. Gantz’s surprise move was widely interpreted as a precursor to a power-sharing deal with the prime minister to form an emergency government. The coronavirus pandemic, including more than 2,600 confirmed Israeli cases, has added urgency to break a stalemate between the two leaders.

Fish ponds and water harvesting: climate-smart farming comes to Kenya 26 Mar 5:00am Fish ponds and water harvesting: climate-smart farming comes to Kenya
Unable to rely on the catch from Lake Victoria, locals are finding success with new and sustainable agriculture methods It might not be clear why a fish pond project should take root in a region surrounding the great Lake Victoria. After all, as the second largest freshwater lake in the world, it should be able to support the fish and the people that depend on its resources. But the fact that fish farming is fast expanding here highlights a worrying trend – that the fish population in Lake Victoria has been in steady decline and the quality of what is being caught has been going down too, jeopardising the livelihoods of millions.

As the fifth anniversary of the Saudi and Emirati coalition intervention dawns, the prospect of peace is further away than ever Aisha al-Temmimi, 21, has never adjusted to the dust and heat of the Yemeni desert city of Marib. Her family are from the lush green highlands of Hajjah in the country’s north, but were forced to leave after fighting between the Iran-backed Houthis and government forces reached their village two years ago. Marib, already rich in oil and gas reserves, has become something of a boom town since Yemen’s war broke out, a place where those displaced by violence elsewhere in the country have found relative safety. Even Marib’s stability, however, has proven fragile after fierce new battles to the north and west of the city.
