Kenyan chief justice says judges are receiving 'aggressive' threats

In tonight's edition: Kenya's chief justice says judges are receiving "aggressive" threats; Rwandan activist Diane Rwigara describes her jailing; and migrants return to Libya's shores as an alleged secret deal between Italy and people smugglers collapses.

Kenya's chief justice says that attempts to intimidate Supreme Court judges after they nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta's re-election have been "unlawful and savage in nature".

Also, weeks after she was arrested on charges of tax evasion and forgery, Diane Rwigara, a leading critic of Rwandan President Paul Kagame, remains convinced that she is being politically persecuted.

And 5,000 migrants are rescued at sea in a week. This comes after a summer where far fewer boats left Africa. Italy is suspected of having struck a secret deal with Libyan militias to limit the number of arrivals - although it denies this. The deal now appears to have collapsed after lasting just two months.
