Ugandan troops battle South Sudan rebels

The UN warns of possible genocide in the Central African Republic, urging a robust international effort to stop violence which killed at least eight people overnight. And the number of lions in West Africa has drastically declined, according to a new study. Conservationists warn they could become extinct.
