Al Qaeda claims responsibility for murder of French journalists

A Mauritanian news agency is contacted by Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb about the murders of journalists Ghislaine Dupont and Claude Verlon in Mali. The group claims it killed the pair.

And we hear from a Cameroonian author whose tale of slavery has won her one of France's most prestigious literary prizes.
