South African president condemns recent xenophobic attacks

South Africa's president vows to come down hard on anyone who attacked foreigners during last week's bout of xenophobic violence in KwaZulu-Natal province in which three people were killed. Also, Algeria's ailing president vows to step down before April 28. But Abdelaziz Bouteflika has not given a date after weeks of protests against his 20-year rule. And home is where the art is. Private homes in the UNESCO world heritage site of Goree island in Senegal open their doors to visitors.
