Cameroon mourns train crash victims

In tonight's edition: Cameroon mourns the victims of Friday's train crash, four die protesting the UN mission in Central African Republic and Mauritians unite over a centuries-old pastime: horse racing.


The death toll from last week's train wreck in Cameroon rises to 79, this as the country marks a day of mourning and anger against authorities grows.

Also, at least four people are killed and several injured in violent protests in Central African Republic's capital. Clashes broke out between peacekeepers and armed men in Bangui as demonstrators gathered to call for UN troops to either step up efforts to keep the peace or leave.

And we head to Mauritius, where a love of horse racing helps unite communities across the island nation. Thousands flock weekly to the Champ de Mars race course, keeping alive a tradition founded in the 1800s by a British governor.
