Michelle Obama visits Liberia

In tonight's edition: Jacob Zuma's corruption case, Madagascar's independence day attack, and Michelle Obama in Africa.

Putting a price on Jacob Zuma's transgression, South Africa's national treasury has released a report ordering the president to pay 7.8 million rand, or 450,000 euros. Earlier this year Zuma was found guilty of using state funds to make non-security related upgrades to his private residence.

Meanwhile, in a deadly end to Independence Day celebrations in Madagascar, two people were killed and another 84 wounded in an explosion on Sunday evening. Revellers had gathered in the capital's Mahamasina stadium. The lapse had many outraged; just last week rumours of a possible attack had prompted security agents to address plans to secure the stadium. It's unclear who was responsible. The government, however, has blamed the attack on tensions with political opponents.

And Michelle Obama has landed in Africa. Along with her mother and two daughters, the First Lady arrived in the coastal west African country as part of a three-nation tour. Girls' education is the trip's central theme. Mrs. Obama also met with Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, as the country struggles to get back on its feet following the devastating Ebola epidemic.
