Hosni Mubarak cleared over death of protesters

In tonight's edition: Mubarak is acquitted over the death of protesters during the 2011 revolution in Egypt, talks between Germany and Namibia over reparations are in jeopardy and we meet some of the actors from Callywood, Nigeria's new movie hub.


In a final ruling, Egypt’s top court finds former leader Hosni Mubarak innocent of the murder of hundreds of protesters during the 2011 revolution.

Also, as reparation talks between Namibia’s Herero tribespeople and Germany continue over the genocide of around 100,000 Africans in the early 20th century, an apology is on the table from Berlin but it says it’s not in a position to hand over land.

And a casting call for Callywood: we head to the southern Nigerian city of Calabar and take a look at the budding film industry there. Producers say they're ready to go global.
