In Mali, there are growing concerns about the sale of a group of privately-managed schools to an education foundation run by the Turkish government. The institutions had previously belonged to a movement accused of trying to stage a coup last year.
Also, as the threat of Boko Haram attacks eases, Hausa couples in northeastern Nigeria celebrate in style with extravagant weddings. FRANCE 24 was invited to the party.
Finally, faced with rapidly disappearing forests and the lemurs that inhabit them, villagers in one part of Madagascar are taking over the management of their surroundings in the hope of protecting the endangered animals.
