South Africa's Jacob Zuma shrugs off corruption allegations

Jacob Zuma denies breaking the law. The former South African president tells a corruption inquiry that enemies plotted to bring him down. Also, in DR Congo, the first Ebola case is confirmed in the eastern city of Goma. Its location, right on the Rwandan border, is raising fears that the outbreak could escalate. Finally, a sixteen-month-long social media ban is lifted in Chad.
