Youssou N'Dour's malaria hopes


One of Africa's most celebrated singers, Youssou N'Dour, played a rare one-off concert in London last night.

He also used the opportunity to draw attention to the campaign against malaria, a preventable disease that kills a child every 47 seconds.

The BBC's Mike Thomson caught up with him just before he went on stage.
