Ivory Coast: Three dead in clashes between police and ex-rebels in Bouaké

In tonight's edition: three former rebels are killed in Ivory Coast as protests over overdue bonus pay continue; our correspondent met with the former minister in DR Congo who is accused of involvement in unrest in the Kasai region; and we meet the negotiator who brokered the release of 82 Chibok girls in Nigeria.

Three former rebels are killed and up to 20 people wounded in the Ivory Coast, as a protest over overdue bonus pay promised by the government takes a violent turn.

Also, an ongoing investigation into the murder of two UN workers in DR Congo has sparked a separate inquiry after tapes emerged that could implicate a former minister in the country's militia violence.

And our correspondent in Nigeria meets a chief mediator in the negotiations that led to Saturday's release of 83 Chibok girls kidnapped by Boko Haram.
