Buy Country Review

I have learned that I, we, are a dollar-a-day people (which is terrible, they say, because a cow in Japan is worth $9 a day).

The trial of the two men had become a cause célèbre, with the AU agreeing a resolution that no sitting African head of state should appear before an international court. It drew the line, however, at actually withdrawing from the ICC when a motion failed to get sufficient support. African leaders have long complained that the court unfairly targets them.
