Chad's former president Hissene Habre to appear in court

An historic step towards Africa trying its own: 15 years on from his indictment, Chad's former president, Hissene Habre, is to appear in court in Dakar charged with war crimes. Also, suicide bombers kill at least 13 people during Eid prayers in Nigeria's north-eastern town of Damaturu. Army officials say one of the female bombers was as young as ten. And Nairobi undergoes a facelift ahead of next week's visit by US President Barack Obama.
