AU summit: African leaders talk security, corruption and trade deals

African heads of state pledge to work more closely together to push back against armed extremists operating on the continent. Security, corruption and trade deals are on the agenda for the African Union's annual summit, held this year in Mauritania. France's president also heads to Nouakchott to meet with the G5 Sahel. Emmanuel Macron calls for more security collaboration with African allies as an al Qaeda-linked group claims responsibility for an attack on French troops in Mali.
