French priest kidnapped in Cameroon

Gunmen have kidnapped a French priest working in northern Cameroon, nine months after Nigerian Islamist sect Boko Haram seized a French family in the same lawless area.

And Togo's President is due in Paris on a trip that has sparked criticism amongst the opposition back home.
