Fistfight erupts during Zuma's State of the Nation speech

In tonight's edition: a fight breaks out in South Africa's parliament during Jacob Zuma's State of the Nation speech, Kenya's high court blocks a decision to close Dadaab refugee camp; and Ghanaian farmers say sweet potato crops have improved their lives.
