NewsGrid – Al Jazeera's interactive news hour

Live every day at 15:00 GMT, NewsGrid, Al Jazeera’s first interactive news bulletin, gives you the opportunity to engage with the world’s news stories on and off the grid.

Main topics on Friday, March 31:

  • South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma has fired Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan in a major cabinet reshuffle, replacing him with Malusi Gigaba, home affairs head. Ten other ministers were also fired or moved. We go live to Pretoria where protests are under way.

  • Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, has said that ousting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is no longer a priority. Haley said the US government is now working with Russia and Turkey to seek new strategies to end the war. We ask how will this affect the Syrian talks in Geneva.

  • US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson addressed a NATO meeting on Thursday asking for a focus on the fight against ISIL and the Ukraine-Russia conflict. We have the latest on the talks.
