Female infertility: Diaspora in Europe seek egg donors in Africa

In tonight's edition: Infertility is a taboo for African women and for the diaspora, finding black egg donors can lead to long waiting lists; PR firm Bell Pottinger is expelled from the industry's trade group in the UK, accused of fostering racial tensions in South Africa; and traditional weavers are trying to compete with wax in Ivory Coast.

Infertility is a taboo for many African women. And for the diaspora, finding black egg donors can lead to long waiting lists. That's why more and more are travelling to Africa for faster results and greater choice.

Also, Bell Pottinger, a major British PR firm, has been expelled from the industry's trade group in the UK. It stands accused of fostering racial tensions in South Africa on behalf of a client.

And the wax print cloth may be associated with African fashion, but not a single yard of it is made in Africa anymore. Now, traditional weavers are fighting back by reviving age-old patterns and techniques, and making them new again.
