Zambia accused of illegal handover of Zimbabwean opposition figure

Zimbabwean opposition figure Tendai Biti appears in court on charges of declaring unofficial election results. He was returned to Zimbabwe after being denied asylum by Zambia, despite a court order that he remain in the country while his case was under review. His brother tells us why he thinks the handover was illegal. Also, Congolese president Joseph Kabila's agreement not to seek a third term in office has been internationally welcomed, but his choice of successor is not to everyone's taste.
