Investigators believe terrorists were targeting G5 Sahel meeting in Ouagadougou

In tonight's edition: Investigators believe terrorists were targeting a G5 Sahel regional meeting in Ouagadougou; South Africa blames food firms for the world's worst listeria outbreak; and Sierra Leoneans prepare to vote in presidential elections.

West African heads of state vow to work more closely together to tackle regional extremism in the wake of the twin terror attack in Ouagadougou in which at least eight people were killed last week.

Also, Mozambique, Namibia, Botswana and Zambia all pull back from South African meat products after a processing factory near Pretoria is found to be at the heart of the world’s worst ever outbreak of listeria. At least 180 deaths have been logged.

And Sierra Leone’s gearing up for elections this week in a race to succeed President Ernest Bai Koroma. The polls take place against the backdrop of an economic crisis.
