    A prominent critic of South Africa's President Jacob Zuma will receive police protection after she received death threats, local media reports.

    Parliament and the police carried out a security assessment, which confirmed that a "threat" existed against Makhosi Khoza, a governing African National Congress MP, parliament said in a statement.

    Ms Khoza has called on Mr Zuma to step down, accusing him of being a "disgraceful" leader who has been dogged by corruption allegations.

    Mr Zuma denies any wrongdoing, and there is no suggestion that he is linked to the death threats.

  2. Zimbabwe girl 'mauled by lion'

    A lioness is pictured on November 18, 2012 in Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe.

    A 10-year-old girl has allegedly been killed by a lion while relieving herself at night at the back of a hut in a rural part of Zimbabwe, a police spokesman is quoted by the state-linked Chronicle newspaper as saying.

    Mitchell Mucheni's aunt allegedly watched in shock as the lion dragged the child into a bush, the spokesman said.

    The child's body was later found out about 300m away, he added.

    The incident happened on Saturday night near a famous game reserve in south-eastern Zimbabwe.
