Cameroon's president orders end to prosecution of Anglophone leaders

In this edition: Cameroon's President Paul Biya orders an end to legal proceedings against three Anglophone protest leaders; Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari leads his first cabinet meeting for five months; and half a million Africans descend upon Mecca for the traditional hajj pilgrimage.

Cameroon's President Paul Biya orders an end to legal proceedings against three so-called "Anglophone leaders" who were arrested last December over turmoil in the country's northwest and southwest regions. We cross live to our correspondent for the latest.

Also, Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari has led his first cabinet meeting for five months, following a lengthy stay in London for medical treatment. But there's growing speculation over his health. We bring you analysis with our Nigeria correspondent.

And almost two million Muslims descend upon Mecca this year for the traditional hajj pilgrimage. Half a million have made the trip from the African continent. For many, it's the journey of a lifetime.
