Mr Harry Laurent Rahajason, a former communications minister, was sentenced to 44 months in prison in October for disrupting public order and inciting hatred. "My brother's... sentence has been confirmed by the appeals court," Mr Rahajason's sister Ms Bodo Fabre said in tears, accusing the judges of bias. Mr Rahajason was arrested in July, days after two students held by police for putting up a protest banner in the capital Antananarivo said they had been instigated by the ex-minister. The students had taken to the streets to demand the release of the leader of their student group, who had been detained in June for criticising the drink on Facebook.

Tourists have been told not to swim or surf in the waters of an idyllic island near the coast of Madagascar because it’s swarming with sharks. Ten people have been killed in recent years around Réunion Island – a paradise location which sits in the Indian Ocean in an area labelled a ‘shark highway’.
