Description

The World Health Organisation says Europe's daily Covid deaths rose by nearly 40% compared with the previous week. France, Spain, the UK, the Netherlands and Russia accounted for the majority of cases which increased by a third.

Also, doctors say Covid-19 is now rampant in the refugee camps of Idlib, north-west Syria.

And in Nigeria - a trial seen as a test of strict new laws on homosexuality has collapsed.
