New revelations on role of French army in 1960s war in Cameroon

In this edition: a look back at an obscure episode of France's history in Africa; a new app in Kenya enables rape victims to report the crime; and we meet with the lowland gorillas of DR Congo.


It was one of the bloodiest - and least documented - episodes of France's history in Africa. A witness is finally speaking out on FRANCE 24 about colonial-era repression in Cameroon.

Also, one in three women around the world has been sexually assaulted in her lifetime, according to the World Health Organization. In Kenya, a new app is making it easier for victims to speak out and report abuse.

And attracting tourists in the hopes of saving a species from extinction. Authorities in the Democratic Republic of Congo are luring visitors with a glimpse of the rare eastern lowland gorilla.
