Coup General behind Mali's year of turmoil arrested

The general behind the coup that kick-started Mali's year of turbulence is arrested and charged with kidnapping. General Sanogo is accused of having persecuted soldiers opposed to his takeover last year. Also, work continues in Democratic Republic of Congo to demobilise rebel fighters following the M23's surrender. And Kenyan lawmakers are not happy with the UK's decision to forbid the mild narcotic khat. A delegation is headed over to Britain to warn that a ban would hit Kenyan farmers hard.
