World AIDS Day marked across the globe

In tonight's edition: It's World AIDS Day, Gambia holds its presidential election, and Ousmane Sow passes away.

It's World AIDS Day, a chance to take stock of the progress made in fighting the disease. In the past five years, deaths have fallen by 45%. More people than ever before now have access to treatment. But Sub-Saharan Africa remains the most affected part of the world. 26 million people there are living with HIV/AIDS.

Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of Gambians have cast their votes to choose their next leader, this under a total communications blackout. There was no internet access, telephones lines were cut and all demonstrations banned. President Yahya Jammeh is facing off against Adama Barrow, a 51-year-old businessman who has campaigned on a promise of change.

And Senegal is mourning the death of a pioneer artist. World-renowned sculptor Ousmane Sow has passed away at the age of 81 in Dakar. His works celebrated African tribes and historical icons like Nelson Mandela and were exhibited all over the world.
