France's Macron in Nigeria to talk security with Buhari, boost cultural ties

French President Emmanuel Macron arrives in Abuja for a meeting with his Nigerian counterpart Muhammadu Buhari, his latest attempt to forge closer ties with English-speaking Africa. Also, Cameroonians donate more than €750,000 to an aid drive for those displaced by the country's anglophone crisis. And the son of a French woman held hostage in Mali heads out into the Sahel in the hope that her captors will allow them a meeting.
