Protests continue in Togo despite ban on weekday demonstrations

In tonight's edition: anti-government protesters continue to hit the streets in Togo; President Kenyatta snubs a crisis meeting a week before the election re-run in Kenya; and a museum dedicated to Yves Saint Laurent's work opens in Marrakech.

Also, Kenya's election board chief holds emergency talks just one week before the country's presidential vote re-run. Meanwhile, a crucial crisis meeting is snubbed by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

And we take a look at the new Yves Saint Laurent museum in Marrakech. Morocco's "red city" was a source of inspiration and a second home for the late, iconic French designer.
