CNN examines 'Africa At Risk' next month

MUMBAI: As the world turns its attention to the upcoming G8 Summit in Scotland CNN International will produce a distinctive week of programming from 2-10 July to investigate the aid, the support and the issues facing the African continent.

The broadcaster's coverage will feature interviews with key G8 and African leaders, including UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, South African President Thabo Mbeki and Mozambican President Armando Guebuza. Throughout the week long initiative which the channel has dubbed Africa at Risk CNN will feature correspondent Christiane Amanpour’s reporting from Ethiopia on extreme poverty, the daily grind of people who live on less than $1 a day, and what's being done to relieve the problem. The 90-minute Amanpour special Africa at Risk airs on 3 July at 4:30 pm. Complementing Amanpour’s reporting, CNN’s Africa correspondent Jeff Koinange and video correspondent Alphonso Van Marsh will recount the stories of people in need of humanitarian aid and the relief efforts in Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa.

CNN will also cover the Live 8 concert series on July, with highlights from performance venues in Johannesburg, London, Philadelphia, Paris, Rome, Berlin, Tokyo and Toronto. CNN correspondents will offer a closer look at the efforts of the celebrity activists and famous musicians who have united to increase global awareness of the relentless poverty that plagues the continent. Then, as the G8 leaders meet in Gleneagles, Scotland from 6 - 8 July CNN’s special coverage of Africa at Risk will continue with live reporting from the Summit by CNN’s European political editor Robin Oakley, White House correspondents John King, Suzanne Malveaux and Elaine Quijano. Additionally, CNN correspondents will offer live updates from the organized demonstrations in Edinburgh and surrounding areas.
