Togo sees second day of protests against President Gnassingbé

In tonight's edition: massive protests in Togo continue for a second day; a study by the UN Development Programme looks at the factors that incite young people to join organisations like Boko Haram and Al-Shabaab; and every day in South Africa, 150 women report they have been raped, but they accuse the police of being insensitive and slow.

A second day of massive protests in Togo. Thousands of people demand that President Faure Gnassingbé step down immediately, instead of modifying the constitution to allow him two more terms in office to prolong his tenure.

Also, understanding the pull of extremist groups in Africa. A study by the UN Development Programme looks at the factors that incite young people to join organisations like Boko Haram and Al-Shabaab. They include poverty, marginalisation, and low education levels. We speak to one of the study's authors.

And in South Africa, every day, 150 women report they have been raped. But only a small fraction of those accusations end in a conviction. Women accuse South African police of being insensitive and slow.
