A group of about a dozen U.S. State Department officials have taken the unusual step of formally accusing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson of violating a federal law designed to stop foreign militaries from enlisting child soldiers, according to internal documents reviewed by Reuters. A confidential State Department “dissent” memo, which Reuters was first to report on, said Tillerson breached the Child Soldiers Prevention Act when he decided in June to exclude Iraq, Myanmar, and Afghanistan from a U.S. list of offenders in the use of child soldiers.

Lebanon's army chief told his soldiers on Tuesday to be extra vigilant to prevent unrest during political turmoil after the prime minister quit, and accused Israel of "aggressive" intentions at the southern frontier. Troops should be ready to "thwart any attempt to exploit the current circumstances for stirring strife," the army's Twitter account quoted General Joseph Aoun as saying ahead of Independence Day celebrations on Wednesday. "The exceptional political situation that Lebanon is going through requires you to exercise the highest levels of awareness." Aoun called on troops to "assume full readiness at the southern border to face the threats of the Israeli enemy, its violations, and the aggressive intentions it is indicating towards Lebanon." A senior Israeli official dismissed the warnings of border aggression as "nonsense".

Investigators found additional human remains in early November of U.S. Army Sergeant La David Johnson, who was killed in an ambush last month in Niger along with three other U.S. soldiers, the Pentagon said on Tuesday. The ambush drew attention to the little-known U.S. military presence in Niger, and it came under further scrutiny when President Donald Trump’s handling of condolence messages to the families of the dead U.S. soldiers was criticized by lawmakers in Washington. Investigators found the remains on Nov. 12 and military medical examiners have verified that the remains were Johnson's, Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said in a statement.

Ruling party chief whip Lovemore Matuke says Mr Mnangagwa, who fled the country after his firing, "is not far from here."

I must admit I thought this man would die in power, because of the power structures he built around himself. I am very concerned about what is coming next. People are over enthusiastic about Mugabe going,  when the future of democratic politics in Zimbabwe is really problematic.  The legacy of the manner in which this was done,  and the centrality of the military,  will see them as arbiters and I fear this will have negative implications for the future.    4:22PM No mention yet who is leading the country... The resignation letter written by Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe that was read out by the speaker of the country's parliament made no mention of who he was leaving in charge of the country.
