City of Thorns By Ben Rawlence

Situated hundreds of miles from any other settlement, deep within the inhospitable .desert of northern Kenya where only thorn bushes grow, Dadaab is a city like no other. Its buildings are made from mud, sticks or plastic, its entire economy is grey, and its citizens survive on rations and luck. Over the course of four years, Ben Rawlence became a first-hand witness to a strange and desperate limbo-land, getting to know many of those who have come there seeking sanctuary. Among them are Guled, a former child soldier who lives for football; Nisho, who scrapes an existence by pushing a wheelbarrow and dreaming of riches; Tawane, the indomitable youth leader; and schoolgirl Kheyro, whose future hangs upon her education.

UN panel 'rules in Julian Assange's favour' - BBC News
Mr Assange took refuge in London's Ecuadorian embassy in 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden over sex assault claims, which he denies. He earlier tweeted he would accept arrest if the panel ruled against him, but if the decision went his way the arrest warrant should be dropped. The Met Police said he will still be held if he does leave the embassy. A warrant for his arrest remains in place.
