In tonight's edition: Doubts over claims a second Chibok girl is rescued; Africa's first Zika outbreak; and drought in Somaliland.
In Nigeria, campaigners for over 200 schoolgirls kidnapped in the town of Chibok in 2014 have cast doubts over claims the army has rescued a second girl from the group. The military says the alleged Chibok girl was among 97 women and children freed this week from Boko Haram captivity. Amina Nkeki was the first Chibok girl to be rescued earlier this week in Sambisa forest. Questions however have been raised over the identity of the second girl, known only as Serah Luka.
Meanwhile, the World Health Organization has warned that an outbreak of the Zika virus on the African island of Cape Verde is of the same strain blamed for birth defects in Brazil. It's the first time this particular strain has been detected in Africa. It's believed the virus was brought to Cape Verde by a person travelling from the South American nation.
And until last month, large swathes of the Horn of Africa had been hit by drought, sparking catastrophic consequences with crops and herds destroyed. Rains, though, have finally arrived, including in Somaliland. But there, not everyone is celebrating. The recent deluges have come too late for many livestock herders.
