Zuma trial: South African court rejects plea to overturn sentence

In this edition: South Africa's top court denies an application by Jacob Zuma to rescind his 15-month jail sentence. In a scathing rebuke, it accuses the former president of "litigious skullduggery". Also, virologists believe that a new treatment approved by the US FDA is a cure against Ebola. And more than 400 trucks sent by the UN to the Tigray region of Ethiopia have disappeared. The World Food Programme says that's having a direct impact on its humanitarian response in the area.
