Zambia's Ex-President, Rupiah Banda Arrested Over Nigerian Oil Deal

Zambia's former President Rupiah Banda has been arrested in connection with a Nigerian oil deal. He is accused of stealing more than $11m (£7m) during his three years in office.

Mr Banda, who was stripped of presidential immunity earlier this month, was questioned for nearly three hours before being freed on bail.
The former president denies the charges and says he is the victim of a witch-hunt. He is due in court on Tuesday.
Mr Banda led Africa's top copper producer from 2008 to 2011.
