Cameroon: Anglophone protest leaders to be released

In tonight's edition: Cameroon prepares to release Anglophone activists after President Paul Biya called for proceedings against them to be dropped; a suicide bomber kills two policemen in Algeria's Tiaret region; and we find out why "Sardi" sheep are particularly in demand to celebrate Eid al-Adha.

Cameroon prepares to release Anglophone activists after President Paul Biya called for proceedings against them to be dropped. They were detained last year in connection with unrest in the country's English-speaking regions.

Also, a suicide bomber kills two policemen in Algeria's Tiaret region. It’s the second such attack this year. We bring you the latest from the capital Algiers.

And as Muslims prepare to celebrate Eid al-Adha, one of the biggest feasts in their calendar, "Sardi" sheep are particularly in demand. We bring you a report from our correspondents in Morocco.
