South African students continue to demande free education

In tonight's edition: South African students continue to demand free education; a key witness in France's checkered pass in Cameroon tells us his story; and we meet with the endangered lowland gorillas of DR Congo.

Violent scenes continue in South Africa as student protesters keep up the pressure on President Zuma.

Also, France 24 talks to a key witness to one of the bloodiest -- and least documented -- episodes of France's checkered history in Africa.

And in the DRC, tourism bosses launch a bid to attract visitors -- with a rare species of gorilla the potential star attraction.
