Kenya to hold re-run of presidential election on October 17

In tonight's edition: Kenya's do-over election will take place on October 17; a UN report calls on the International Criminal Court to open an investigation into crimes against humanity in Burundi; and in English-speaking parts of Cameroon, teachers begin the school year with almost empty classrooms.

The date is set. Kenya's do-over election will take place on October 17. Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga will go head to head once more, but the electoral commission will remain the same, despite calls from Odinga's camp to change its members.

Also, amid reports of crimes against humanity in Burundi, a UN report calls on the International Criminal Court to open an investigation. It accuses the government of creating a climate of fear - claims which the president's spokesperson predicted "would have no effect".

And in English-speaking parts of Cameroon, teachers began the school year with almost empty classrooms, after activists called on parents to boycott. It's part of the ongoing protest for equal rights in the Francophone-majority country.
