France grants compensation rights to all victims of Algerian War of Independence

In tonight's edition: France extends compensation rights to all victims of the Algerian War of Independence; we speak to deported Kenyan opposition activist Miguna Miguna; and protests take place in Sudan over soaring bread prices.


France's constitutional court decides to grant financial compensation to all victims of the Algerian War of Independence. It’s a move that could have a big impact throughout former French colonies.

Also, Kenyan opposition activist Miguna Miguna has been deported, allegedly because Kenyan authorities say he's no longer a citizen. He speaks to us from Canada about growing political tensions back home.

And Sudan has seen a wave of protests since the start of the year. Demonstrators are furious about the rise in the cost of staples like bread at a time of record inflation.
