In tonight's show, a Paris appeals court has rejected a request to reopen an investigation into the 1994 death of Rwanda's then president in a plane crash - that crash was a key trigger in the genocide of the Tutsis. Also, major political turmoil continues in Mali with ongoing calls from the opposition for the resignation of President Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta. And elephants are dying in numbers much higher than usual in Bostwana, a tragic phenomenom that is confounding scientists.
