Sassou Nguesso re-elected president of Congo-Brazzaville, opposition rejects results

In tonight's rundown: in Congo-Brazzaville, the president is reelected but the opposition rejects the results; also, our second report on Eritrea focuses on the economy and the mining sector; and we hear from the "Ghetto classics" in Nairobi.
