ICC backs war crimes probe in Burundi

In tonight's edition: the ICC gives the go-ahead for a full investigation into alleged crimes against humanity in Burundi; we take a look at the effects of climate change in Uganda; and we see why China is now the second most popular destination for African students after France.

The International Criminal Court gives the go-ahead to a full investigation into alleged crimes against humanity in Burundi. The Burundian presidency blasts the news by accusing the ICC of "fraud" and "outrageous lies".

Also, we take a look at the effects of climate change in Uganda, a country hit hard by one of the worst droughts in decades.

And China is now the second most popular destination for African students heading abroad, allowing Beijing to boost its influence on the continent.
