* Somalia has expelled the UN's top envoy, Nicholas Haysom, accusing him of ‘shaming’ the world body by acting like the country's ruler. Haysom had raised concern about the killing of protesters allied with ex-militant Islamist Mukhtar Robow. Security forces were allegedly involved in the deaths of about 15 of the protesters and the detention of about 300 people, the UN says.
