Senegalese sculptor joins France's 'artocracy'

We meet the first African to join France's prestigious academy of fine arts. Senegalese sculptor Ousman Sowe dedicates his honour to all of Africa. Also, thousands flock to the Union Buildings to say a final goodbye to Nelson Mandela as his body lies in state ahead of his funeral this weekend. And a lull in the violence in Central Africa's capital gives communities a chance to bury their dead, whilst religious leaders try to offer some comfort to the displaced.
