Ten people have been imprisoned in Niger after they were arrested during several days of violent demonstrations against the restrictions put in place due to the coronavirus.
Young people set up barricades on the streets to protest against the overnight curfew and the ban on collective prayers. The police say more than 100 people have been arrested in the capital, Niamey.
Officials say motorcyclists were caught distributing cans of petrol and several neighbourhoods were set on fire and private property destroyed. The police used tear gas to disperse residents of the capital who were trying to organise prayers at a mosque on Sunday.
4. Trump suspends all immigration into the US due to coronavirus
US President Donald Trump said he will sign an executive order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States, saying he needs to protect American jobs as coronavirus ravages the economy.
The move, announced in a late-night post on Twitter, effectively achieves a long-term Trump policy goal to curb immigration, making use of the health and economic crisis that has swept the country as a result of the pandemic to do so.
He offered no details as to what immigration programmes might be affected by the order. The White House did not immediately elaborate on Trump’s announcement.
5. UEFA to confirm Women’s European Championship move to July 2020
UEFA is set to announce that the postponed 2021 Women’s European Championship will take place from 6-31 July 2022.
The tournament, to be held in England, has been pushed back a year after the men’s European Championship and the Tokyo Olympics were both postponed until 2021 because of the global coronavirus pandemic.
The intention is to use the same venues as the original tournament. Moving the Euros to 2022 will avoid two women’s tournaments in the same summer.
Three European teams – England, the Netherlands and Sweden – have already qualified for the Olympics. As it stands, the finale of the Women’s Euros will coincide with the start of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
