BBC News. Hello, I'm Jerry Smit. The International Court of Justice in the Hague is hearing opening arguments accusing Myanmar genocide against his Muslim Rohingya minority. Myanmar's de facto leader, the Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi is attending the proceedings. She's not expected to speak until Wednesday when she will argue that Myanmar was carrying out a legitimate counter-terrorism operation targeting Rohingya militants. A counsel for the Gambia, Andrew Lowenstein read the account of a witness to some of the killings by Myanmar's armed forces known as the Tatmadaw. The first round of shooting was like a rain of bullets. The second round was slow as the soldiers killed the men individually. They aimed a gun at each man and shot. The soldiers killed those who had survived gunshot wounds with long knives.
A man in the Czech Republic has shot dead six people and injured three others at a hospital in the northeastern city of Ostrava. The motive for the attack is unclear. The Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis called the shooting a terrible tragedy. Rob Cameron reports from Prague. Police say the suspect fled the scene by car before turning the gun on himself. They've identified him as a 42-year-old man who opened fire with a 9 millimeter pistol. The minister praised police for their quick response. They were on the scene within five minutes of the shooting. But questions will inevitably be raised not only about the motive, but also over gun ownership in a country where mass shootings are rare, but many do possess gun licenses for their own protection.
The former mayor of Moscow, Yury Luzhkov, has died to the age of 83. Reports say he'd been receiving medical treatment at a hospital in the German city of Munich. Mr. Luzhkov was mayor of the capital for 18 years from 1992 until 2010 and was a hugely significant figure in post-communist Russia. He was a founding member of the ruling United Russia Party, but he eventually fell out of favor and was fired amid a financial scandal.
The Tanzania President John Magufuli has pardoned more than 5500 prisoners in a bid to ease overcrowding in jails. About 15% of the prison population has been released. Mr. Magufuli said while many will be surprised by the number he pardoned, he felt justified in doing so. Some of these prisoners have been jailed over minor offenses, stealing chickens, insulting a friend, having an argument with their lover, but some because they lacked good lawyers to defend them, others for failure to pay fines, while others have been wrongfully imprisoned.
