Report claims rebels were recruited to crack down on DR Congo protesters

In tonight's edition: DR Congo is accused of having recruited exiled M23 rebel fighters and unleashed them on protesters a year ago, and Zimbabwe's new president hands top cabinet posts to military figures who staged the intervention that forced Robert Mugabe's resignation after 37 years at the helm. Finally, a lifting of the ban of Nigeria's rosewood tree trade threatens these endangered tree species.

DR Congo is accused of having recruited exiled rebel fighters and unleashed them on protesters calling for President Joseph Kabila to step down. The damning report by Human Rights watch says M23 fighters contributed to deadly violence a year ago.

And Zimbabwe's new president hands top cabinet posts to military figures who staged the intervention that forced Robert Mugabe's resignation after 37 years at the helm. Emmerson Mnangagwa says he's sure his new team can bring the change so many Zimbabweans hope for.

The UN's new deputy chief, Amina Mohammed, has been accused of having taken kickbacks to authorise the export of rosewood to China before quitting as Nigeria's environment minister. Since her exit, the ban on exports has been lifted by her successor and trade in the endangered tree is likely to be further ramped up.
