Nigerian army releases 244 Boko Haram suspects

In tonight's edition: the Nigerian army releases 244 Boko Haram suspects; a new law forces unwed couples living together in Burundi to marry; and our correspondents show us how Marrakech is going green.

Nigeria's army has released 244 Boko Haram suspects, who claim to have denounced their membership of the deadly extremist group.

Meanwhile, in Burundi, a new law is putting extra pressure on couples' relationships. Brought in last May, it gave unwed couples who live together until the end of 2017 to formally tie the knot.

And since it hosted the COP22 environmental conference over a year ago, Marrakech has tried to apply some of the green principles discussed at the meeting. Several projects have been brought in, including a fleet of electric buses - a first on the continent.
