Raila Odinga, the Kenyan prime minister, is the African Union's representative in the Cote d'Ivoire. This week he was in the West African country and he tells Sir David Frost what must be done to prevent a new civil war as Laurent Gbagbo, the incumbent president, continues to refuse to concede power.

Plus, after the assassination of the governor of Punjab this week, Sir David talks to Pervez Musharraf, Pakistan's former president, about growing extremism in the country.
