Women protest alleged rapes at Nairobi hospital

In tonight's edition: women protest alleged rapes at Nairobi hospital, the UN says security forces in DR Congo targeted its rights workers during protests, and we pay homage to Hugh Masekela, the father of South African jazz.


Hundreds of Kenyans demonstrate at the country's largest public hospital to demand that management act on shocking allegations of rape of patients.

Also, the UN says that Congolese security forces targeted UN monitors during violence over the weekend. At least six people were killed as police used deadly force to disperse protests against President Joseph Kabila.

And he was known as the father of South African jazz. Legendary musician and anti-apartheid activist Hugh Masekela has died aged 78. He passed away after a decade-long fight with cancer.
