Ivory Coast unrest: Govt says it has reached a deal, some mutineers deny
Date created :
In tonight's edition: the Ivorian government says it has reached a deal to end a soldiers' mutiny; South Africa's high court hears arguments on the form a new confidence vote will take; and victims of the 2014 repression in Burkina Faso are still waiting for justice.
Businesses and schools across Ivory Coast were shut on Monday amidst an ongoing mutiny. The government says it’s struck a deal, but some mutineers don't seem impressed.
Also, in South Africa, hundreds of protesters gather outside the country's top court as opposition parties argue for the right to hold another motion of no-confidence against President Jacob Zuma, but this time by secret ballot.
And in Burkina Faso, the trial in absentia of former president Blaise Compaoré and his cabinet is suspended. It’s a worrying development for those hoping he'll be held to account for a fatal crackdown on protesters in 2014.
