* Authorities in Madagascar on Friday announced a ban on prison visits to prevent the spread of a plague epidemic that has killed 36 people in the Indian Ocean island. ‘In order to protect prisoners from the plague that is spreading outside the prison, we have decided to suspend family visits,’ said prisons administrator Arsen Ralisaona. The ban covers seven jails in the country's two worst affected regions.
