    We've been hearing about endless evacuations of foreign nationals by various governments, but what if your government doesn't have the means to bring people back? The families of a dozen Senegalese students in Wuhan are demanding their immediate return from Wuhan after the President said his country lacks the necessary quarantine facilities to repatriate the students. The families say that decision condemns their loved ones to certain death.

  • Abidjan celebrates the return of I.Coast's Gbagbo after his acquittal

    Supporters of former Ivorian president Laurent Gbagbo dance and celebrate his return after ten years in exile. In 2011, the ex-president was arrested and sent to the International Criminal Court (ICC) on charges of crimes against humanity after he refused to concede a 2010 election, which trigged a civil war. Gbagbo was acquitted by the court in 2019.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
