In this edition: A U.N. base is attacked in northern Mali, Kenyan Vice President William Ruto wins a battle at the International Criminal Court, and it's two days to go until elections in the Central African Republic.


A U.N. base in northern Mali comes under mortar fire and an attack by a car bomb, in what is the latest in a series of attacks in the country. Malian forces are also attacked in Timubktu in an ambush.
Meanwhile, Kenyan Vice President William Ruto wins a battle at the International Criminal Court in the Hague. Recanted testimony will be barred in his trial, in a blow for prosecutors.
And campaigning closes in the Central African Republic ahead of Sunday's second round of voting. The poll is being billed as a chance for a fresh start in a country ravaged by conflict and poverty.
