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.

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.
