Zimbabwe's army chief warns military could intervene to end Zanu-PF purges

In tonight's edition: there are fears in Zimbabwe that an unprecedented rift between the country's army chief and the president may come to a head; Amnesty International is calling on Nigeria to end unlawful evictions in Lagos; and the Moroccan town of Chefchaouen is getting a green makeover.

Army vehicles have reportedly been sighted near Zimbabwe's capital, stoking fears that an unprecedented rift between the country's army chief and the president may come to a head.

Also, deadly forced evictions make life a misery for waterfront communities in Nigeria - that's according to a damning new report from Amnesty International, who are calling on authorities to end the unlawful campaign.

And travellers flock to Chefchaouen in northern Morocco to marvel at its brilliant blue buildings. The town is now opening up its palate to strokes of green, painting a new picture of ecological sustainability.
