Mali vote counting continues

The UN warns that spiralling violence in Central African Republic could hinder the search for one of the world's worst war criminals.

Finally, we head to Benin for a look at a new contemporary art museum that hopes to enrich the nation by putting the spotlight on regional artists' creative works.
