Tuesday 20:55 GMT

Hundreds of thousands of children are to receive a groundbreaking vaccine against the mosquito-born disease in three African countries.

Mary Hamel, the coordinator of the World Health Organization's malaria vaccine program, said the vaccine "has the potential to save the lives of tens of thousands of children." "Its the main cause of illness and death among children aged 5 and under in Malawi," he wrote on Twitter ahead of the trial's launch.
