Westgate Mall Crisis 'drawing to a close'

Kenyan security forces say the siege of a Nairobi shopping centre is drawing to a close. It's still unclear how many gunmen or hostages remain inside Westgate Mall.

Finally, we also look at why so many Rwandans and Burundians have recently felt or been compelled to leave Tanzania.
