Special focus on the African Union Summit January 2015:
Heads of state of the Peace and Security Council (PSC) deferred the tabling of a crucial report on South Sudan and decided to send a regional force to combat Boko Haram.
There were side meetings on Libya and the Democratic Republic of Congo and a decision was made on finding alternative sources of funding for the AU.
Late-night talks between the belligerents in South Sudan also failed to produce a power sharing deal.
The PSC Report spoke to Ambassador Maman Sidikou, Special Representative of the African Union Commission Chairperson for Somalia, about gains made against al-Shabaab.
