    South Sudan's parliament has voted to suspend at least 75 senior officials accused of massive corruption.
    President Salva Kiir sent a letter to the current and ex-government employees, asking them to return at least $4bn (£2.6bn) of stolen money.

    About $60m has been recovered since the letters were sent out last month, the BBC was told last week.
    South Sudan became independent last July, but analysts say corruption is already one of its biggest problems.
    The new nation is also desperately in need of funds after its oil production, which accounts for 98% of revenue, was shut down in an argument with Sudan
