BBC News - Venezuela announces post-Chavez election date, Mar 10, 2013




"A presidential election to replace late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez will be held on 14 April, the country's electoral commission has said. The announcement follows the appointment of Mr Chavez's favoured successor, Nicolas Maduro, as acting president. Hugo Chavez died on 5 March after a long battle with cancer. Mr Maduro will run as the governing party candidate with Henrique Capriles expected to stand for the opposition. Mr Chavez - who led Venezuela for 14 years - won last October's election against Mr Capriles, polling 54% of the vote to Mr Capriles's 44%. As Mr Chavez's health worsened, he announced that his vice-president, Mr Maduro, should succeed him. Mr Maduro, 50, has pledged to carry on the former president's leftist policies and opinion polls have shown him as the favourite to win the next election."

BBC News - Hamid Karzai says US and Taliban sowing post-2014 fears, Mar 10, 2013

Afghan President Hamid Karzai, 10 March
 "President Hamid Karzai has issued a stinging rebuke to the US and the Taliban, saying they are both guilty of sowing fears for post-2014 Afghanistan. He said Taliban suicide attacks on Saturday were aimed at intimidation that would prolong the presence of international troops in Afghanistan. The troops are scheduled to end combat missions in 2014. Mr Karzai has cancelled a scheduled press conference with visiting US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel. A senior Afghan presidential aide told the BBC this was because of tensions over civilian casualties, the handover of control of Bagram prison and the actions of US Special Forces in Wardak province. US officials said it was because of security concerns and not the president's recent comments."

BBC News - Nigerian hostage deaths: Ansaru claims backed, Mar 10, 2013

An image from a December 24, 2012 video released by Jama"atu Ansarul Muslimina fi Biladis Sudan
"A Nigerian Islamist militant group's claims to have killed seven foreign hostages it seized last month are credible, Western governments say. The hostages - from Italy, Britain, Greece and Lebanon - were captured in a raid on a construction site in the northern state of Bauchi. In an online statement posted on Saturday, the militant group Ansaru said it had killed the captives. Ansaru is suspected of being an offshoot of the Boko Haram network. On Sunday, UK Foreign Secretary William Hague said a British construction worker, named as Brendan Vaughan, was "likely to have been killed at the hands of his captors, along with six other foreign nationals"."
