As we went on air, Sayf al-Islam went on TV in Libya to warn that the country is very close to civil war. Muammar Gaddafi's son criticised the anti-government protesters, but also held out the promise of political reform.

Plus we find book number 72 for our virtual bookshelf, reveal how Yoweri Museveni spent $1.5bn on his election campaign in Uganda, and discover the two newest animals at a zoo in Tokyo.
