Tunisian security forces kill terrorists on Libyan border

In tonight's bulletin: We get the latest from our correspondent on a raid on the Tunisian-Libyan border, candidate Lionel Zinsou is facing criticism ahead of Benin's presidential election and the dust has settled on a controversy in the desert of Namibia.


Several suspected militants are killed in Tunisia near the Libyan border as security forces beef up anti-terror patrols in the area.
