The man trying to bring The Gambia's former strongman leader Yahya Jammeh to justice. Kate Adie introduces stories from journalists and correspondents around the world:

Far to the north of Norway, Horatio Clare finds Brits, Ukrainians, Ugandans, Vietnamese, and Russians all trying to start new lives on an island that was once a bastion of Soviet idealism.
"The public are not obliged to like us, but they are obliged not to attack us" - Sophie Cousins hears how things are changing - or not - for gay people in Serbia.
In the dry, isolated heartlands of Argentina finding the right ingredients for a middle-eastern feast can be difficult, but Aude Villiers meets the Syrian refugees settling in San Luis.
And Rob Crossan takes a tour of the proud but small country that claims to be the world's oldest constitutional republic - San Marino.
