    The UK government is planning to introduce more charges for foreigners to access healthcare whilst they visit the country.

    The current scheme has been accused of being ‘flawed’ and this is one of the measures suggested to recover costs.

    People outside of the EU, staying for up to five years, or those who have a visa for six months or more, would face an annual charge.

    Short term visitors will also be charged for non-emergency appointments.

    In March 2013, Kenyans went to the polls to vote for a devolved type of government that ideally should have seen power and development brought closer to the people.

    However, recent media reports show that the counties extravagant expenses are threatening to push development to the back seat.

    Kibera slum residents told IPSTV Correspondent in Kenya Martha Nyambura they had expected positive change to come soon.

    The long and troubled proceedings towards the leaders of Cambodia’s brutal Khmer Rouge came to a head this week in Phnom Penh.

    The two remaining survivors from the regime’s leadership, Khieu Samphan and Nuon Chea, known as Pol Pot’s brother number two, are charged with crimes against humanity in one of the worst mass-crimes in history.

    Between 1975 and 1979, nearly one quarter of the entire Cambodian population died.

    Both perpetrators vigorously deny all charges. The verdict is expected to be handed down in 2014, and the prosecution is demanding life in prison for both defendants. The bigger challenge will be if the panel of international and Cambodian judges can provide justice for a country which has changed enormously, but is still struggling to shake off the scars of its brutal past.

    IPSTV Correspondent Scott Craig reports from Phnom Penh.
