Violence continues in CAR on eve of president's inauguration

At least 10 people are killed in clashes between ex-rebels and Christian militia in the capital of Central African Republic. The new leader, due to be sworn in tomorrow, hopes to return stability to the chaotic nation. Also, at the the World economic forum in Davos, Switzerland, there are warnings that growing unemployment in Africa is driving illegal migration to Europe. And in Ivory Coast, authorities have started forcibly moving whole herds of elephants across the country.
