South Africans go to the polls amid corruption and high unemployment

South Africans go to the polls on Wednesday as the ruling ANC tries to hold on to its majority in parliament. Also, two French tourists who went missing in Benin have now been identified. As the search continues, the kidnapping raises fears that security is deteriorating in the nation. And a library of books on revolution has been set up at the Sudanese protesters' sit-in in Khartoum, so demonstrators can learn from the past while campaigning for their future.
