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. Also, tens of thousands of Ethiopians living in Saudi Arabia have handed themselves in since authorities clamped down on illegal foreign workers over 10 days ago, a move that has sparked clashes. And Togo's President is due in Paris on a trip that has sparked criticism amongst the opposition back home.
