Cameroon's president heads to Nigeria

In tonight's edition: Cameroon's president visits Nigeria; tough times for Somalia's journalists; and the grand opening of Dak'Art 2016.

Cameroon's president is in Nigeria on a two-day visit that is likely to focus on the countries' shared security concerns. Paul Biya's arrival in Abuja follows the visit of his Nigerian counterpart, Muhammadu Buhari, to Cameroon last July. The two leaders are collaborating closely in the battle against Boko Haram insurgents, who have increasingly carried out cross-border attacks from Nigeria's north east.

Meanwhile Tuesday marks World Press Freedom Day. It comes amidst tough times for some journalists. Human Rights Watch has released a new report highlighting the particular dangers faced by those reporting in Somalia. Al Shabaab extremists often target journalists in the country - and the government has also come under criticism for trying to affect media coverage. Despite the dangers, many try to keep at it.

And the 12th edition of Dak'Art, the contemporary African art show, has kicked off in the Senegalese capital. Over the next month, artists from all over the world will be exhibiting their work in sites across the city.
