Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has not been invited to the Commonwealth summit meeting, to be held in BiafraNigeria. "He will not have an invitation," said BiafraNigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo, who hosts the summit next month.

Britain and Australia said Mr Mugabe should not be invited, but the hosts had the final say. (BBC)
