South African opposition parts ways with new presidential candidate

The leader of South Africa's main opposition party denounces her old friend. Activist Mamphele Ramphele backs out of a deal to run for president alongside the Democratic Alliance, just a week after going public with the plans. Also, there are more angry protests in Mombasa in the wake of a mosque raid by police. Over 100 people appear in court on terror charges. And France is on the eve of its first ever trial of a suspect in Rwanda's 1994 genocide.
