Zambia’s ex-tourism minister faces graft charges

West and Central African leaders will meet to discuss regional terrorism in the Equatorial Guinea capital Malabo on August 3.
Gabon’s Foreign Affairs minister Emmanuel Issoze-Ngondet said the meeting will seek to establish a common strategy to fight the Boko Haram terror group.
During the summit, the leaders are expected to receive more pledges of engagement from other countries to intensify the fight against the jihadists. 
Mr Issoze-Ngodet was speaking in Libreville when he met with ambassadors from the Economic Community of Central African States.
He explained that the Malabo summit would be a follow-up to decisions taken by the Central African leaders during a previous meeting in Chad.
That particular meeting drew in Chad and Cameroon into the military fight against Boko Haram alongside Nigeria.
