Thousands continue to flee violence in DR Congo's Kasai region

In tonight's edition: we report from DR Congo's Kasai region, where thousands continue to flee violence. Also, the opposition in Rwanda prepares to battle against incumbent Paul Kagame in the upcoming presidential election. Finally, is piracy plaguing the African film industry?

In Rwanda, presidential election campaigning kicks off ahead of polls on August 4. Three candidates, including incumbent Paul Kagame, are vying for their country's top job.

Also, continuing violence in DR Congo's Kasai region has led thousands of people to flee. Our correspondent travels to the town of Idiofa, where 3,000 people have already sought refuge.

And finally, 183 million euros is the estimated annual shortfall for the African audiovisual sector, owing to piracy. As the Yaoundé film festival approaches, the fight against copyright infringement is taking centre stage.
