An election may still be two years away, but the Alberta Party is looking to refocus its efforts in an attempt to recapture a provincial seat. "We need to get into the legislature," Jacquie Fenske, the acting leader and former Progressive Conservative MLA, told CBC News.

Police fired tear gas and detained several demonstrators in the Nigerian cities of Lagos and Abuja on Saturday during protests over the worsening security situation in Africa's most populous country, Reuters witnesses said.
