President Kenyatta wins vote boycotted by Kenya's opposition

President Kenyatta wins 98% of the vote in Kenya's repeat election. The opposition, which boycotted the vote, now has 7 days to mount a legal challenge. Also, a Paris court arrests, then releases, the brother of former Burkina Faso President Compaoré, as it considers a request to extradite him in connection with the 1998 murder of a journalist. And we see how the Malian desert city of Timbuktu is threatened by encroaching sands.
