Trapped miners remain underground to avoid arrest

Staying underground: authorities are trying to convince miners in South Africa to come back to the surface but with police standing by there's only been a score of takers so far.

Uganda’s President says he will pass a law banning homosexuality. Finally, Africa News changes gear to catch up with Natnael Berhané, an Eritrean cyclist speeding across France.
