Italy pledges state funeral for African migrants

The drowning of more than 300 African migrants off an Italian island leads Europe to do some soul searching. Also, in the next instalment of "Undocumented", our series on illegal immigration here in France, we meet a woman trying to win legal status for herself and her children. And Kenya rails against the ICC once more, asking for President Kenyatta to remotely attend his trial in The Hague.

Finally, we find out why a British oil firm is accused of endangering Africa's oldest nature reserve.
