Indonesia deploys soldiers to combat forest fires

Thousands of fires have sent thick smoke over neighbouring countries

Thousands of forest fires are sending thick smoke across Indonesia. The country's president has ordered action against those who start fires. We speak to our reporter on the island of Kalimantan.

Also, the latest on a story from the Nigerian city of Port Harcourt, where several women have been killed in hotel rooms. We get the reaction from women there as they call for protection.

And people in Ghana are using the hashtag #TiwaaMustGo to demand the resignation of a police chief. Our reporter in Accra explains why.
