Militia groups take over Central African Republic town of Bria
Date created :
In this week's edition: the Central African Republic town of Bria is now under the control of militia groups; Madagascar is still suffering from endemic poverty; and we meet the fastest granny in the world.
We take a look at the Central African Republic town of Bria, which after a recent flare-up of violence is being run by militia groups who have turned their back on recent efforts to move forward with a hard-fought peace deal.
Also, we look at the endemic corruption undermining efforts to turn back Madagascar's political and economic woes. The country struggles with a devastating combination of widespread poverty and graft.
And age is just a number and that number is breaking records. We meet the South African athlete who, at 85, is running away from ideas about her limitations.
