Musician Saeid Shanbehzadeh pays tribute to his African roots

Protests continue in Tunisia as the number of arrests reaches more than 600. Also, thousands of mourners take to the streets in central Nigeria to attend the mass burial of farmers killed in clashes with herders. And we meet Saeid Shanbehzadeh, an Iranian musician who is paying tribute to his African roots through his music.

In Tunisia, over 600 people have been arrested in a week that's seen anti-austerity protesters take to the streets.

Also, in Nigeria, the longstanding rivalry over land between Fulani herdsmen and farmers has already claimed more than 80 lives this year. Dozens are buried in Benue state as the government faces calls to do more to stem the violence.

Meanwhile, Senegalese neighbours of the late French singer France Gall share their fond memories of her. Gall, who died last weekend aged 70, had a home in Senegal.

And we're joined by Afro-Iranian musician Saeid Shanbehzadeh, who says that his Zanzibari roots are an integral part of his creative identity.
