Mugabe confined but 'safe' as army seizes power in Zimbabwe

In tonight's edition: the army seizes power in Zimbabwe, with President Mugabe confined but "safe"; the UN extends the mandate of a peacekeeping mission to the Central African Republic; and the World Food Programme and the EU are providing emergency aid to Congo Brazzaville's hard-hit Pool region.

Robert Mugabe once vowed to rule Zimbabwe for life. But now, at 93, the president is in military custody as the army takes control of the capital in what it calls a "bloodless correction" targeting "criminals" in the leader's entourage.

Also, the UN extends the mandate of a peacekeeping mission to the Central African Republic. Some 900 more troops will shore up security as sectarian violence increases the risk of ethnic cleansing.

And relief for Congo Brazzaville's humanitarian crisis. The World Food Programme and the European Union are to provide emergency aid to people affected by violence in the country's hard-hit Pool region.
