Medical charity MSF suspends operations in CAR town of Zemio

In tonight's edition: MSF suspends operations in Zemio; we examine the phenomenon of "Badoo murders" in Nigeria; and hundreds of black South Africans imprisoned during the apartheid era demand freedom.

Suspending operations: the killing of a baby at a Medecins Sans Frontieres hospital in the Central African Republic prompts the medical charity to pull out of the town of Zemio.

Also, fuelled by drugs and black magic: we examine the phenomenon of "Badoo murders" in Nigeria, which are becoming increasingly frequent and gruesome.

And demanding freedom: hundreds of black South Africans imprisoned during the apartheid era ask to be pardoned for their crimes and released from jail.
