Plus: US immigration proposal will exclude LGBTQ asylum-seekers; Burundi's new leader should change course on human rights; Colombia's armed groups killing civilians in the name of Covid; Kenya’s teen pregnancy crisis; financial burdens for Cambodian families; and justice for Afghanistan's women footballers. 

The US city of Tulsa, Oklahoma, this week restarted a dormant investigation into the existence of possible mass graves where victims of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre may lie.

A new immigration proposal by the Trump administration is likely to exclude LGBTQ asylum seekers.

Burundi’s new president, Evariste Ndayishimiye, faces the daunting task of ending patterns of violence and abuse that have long plagued the country.

Armed groups in Colombia have killed and abused civilians in an effort to enforce their own measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Covid-19 lockdown measures and cuts to funding have minimized access to reproductive health support for Kenya's teenage girls, with terrible consequences. 

Many Cambodians fear losing their land more than catching the coronavirus. Economic hardship in the country caused by Covid-19 has left many unable to pay back their loans and at risk of losing everything. 

And finally, justice has been served for Afghan women who spoke up about sexual assault they suffered at the hands of the Afghan Football Federation's president, Keramuddin Karim.
