Australia plans to legalise the exportation of medicinal cannabis

The Australian government has said it aspires to be the world's leading exporter of medicinal cannabis.

The nation plans to change its regulations to join Canada and the Netherlands in selling products beyond a domestic market. Uruguay and Israel have announced similar plans.

Health Minister Greg Hunt said the move would also help local patients.

Mercenaries have attempted to launch a coup in the Western African state of Equatorial Guinea, its government says. At least 30 armed men from Chad, Cameroon and the Central African Republic were arrested late last month, a minister said.

They were found with rocket launchers, rifles and ammunition just over the border in Cameroon, he added.

The government of President Teodoro Obiang Nguema is often accused of corruption and human rights abuses.
