In tonight’s edition: votes are being tallied in Somaliland in the territory’s first presidential election in seven years; a grenade attack on a concert in the Central African Republic set off a deadly chain of inter-religious violence in Bangui this weekend; and Cameroonians who have fled Boko Haram to refugee camps are threatened with expulsion.

Votes are being tallied in the self-proclaimed state of Somaliland, after the territory’s first presidential election in seven years. It had been stalled by a drought, a lack of funds and political turmoil.

Also, a grenade attack on a concert in the Central African Republic set off a deadly chain of inter-religious violence in Bangui this weekend. Seven people were killed and some 20 others wounded. Our team on the ground met with survivors.

And, unable to prove who they are or where they’ve come from, northern Cameroonians who have fled Boko Haram to refugee camps in other parts of the country are threatened with expulsion to Nigeria.
