Juba hands political prisoners over to Kenya

Several political detainees are freed by Juba and handed over to Kenya. It's a partial concession by South Sudan to rebels' demands. This as peace negotiations continue.

And we head to Togo where Islam is the minority religion but where there are growing concerns among imams of a rise in extremism.
