    The return of Laurent Gbagbo: Is Ivory Coast ready for reconciliation?

    His supporters had been waiting ten years for this day. Laurent Gbagbo basked in a hero's welcome for his grand return to Abidjan. It took a brief rekindling of Ivory Coast's civil war to force out the former president when he refused to concede the 2010 election to current leader Alassane Ouattara. After the case against Gbagbo fell apart at the International Criminal Court, we ask about the terms and conditions of the return of a larger-than-life political figure.

    After Bibi: What next for Israel?

    It feels like, in Israeli politics, it ain’t over, even when it is over. Benjamin Netanyahu congratulated his onetime chief of staff after Naftali Bennett ended Bibi's record-breaking 12 year stint as the country's longest serving prime minister.

    He has come to reaffirm ties with his closest allies. But will Joe Biden be drawn into a sausage war? The US president's first foreign tour begins with Britain, host of Friday's G7 summit and whose prime minister wrote a biography of that ultimate icon of the special relationship, Winston Churchill, but whose chummy relationship with Donald Trump drew a bit of scrutiny.

    Make 'em pay? G7 nations claim tax justice breakthrough

    Which route to reform? Migration at core of Kamala Harris' Central America tour

    Which route to reform? Migration at core of Kamala Harris' Central America tour

    First Guatemala, then Mexico. It's a tough maiden foreign assignment for the new US Vice President. Kamala Harris is on a mission to broach the root causes of why undocumented migrants risk it all to head north. How much pressure can Washington apply when her hosts squander or steal the aid that's meant to offer an alternative? It's not all about lofty development goals.
