We cross to Kenya, as former president Uhuru Kenyatta and Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame agree on the need for M23 rebels to cease fire and withdraw from captured territories in eastern DR Congo. The rebels have waged several offensives there this year in their first major comeback since 2012, prompting clashes with the army that have displaced thousands of civilians since March.

We also bring you the latest from the COP27 summit in Egypt. The talks were supposed to end on Friday, but were extended by another day as negotiators seek to break a deadlock over creating a fund for nations hardest hit by global warming.

Finally, we take a closer look at the African teams participating in the World Cup in Qatar.
