South Africa: 23 arrested as students continue to protest tuition fee hikes

Almost two dozen students are arrested as protests against tuition fee hikes in South Africa continue to gather pace. Also, clashes break out in Congo-Brazzaville, in the run-up to this weekend’s referendum that could pave the way for a third mandate for the president. Finally, Ivory Coast's economic recovery stands in good stead for the government as the country gears up for a key presidential election this weekend, but not everyone has reaped the rewards of the recovery.
