    Zambia's government says it will ease some of the emergency measures it introduced to stamp out a cholera outbreak that has killed at least 72 people.

    But that will not extend to the township of Kanyama, where there was rioting on Friday.

    It is where the outbreak first began, and a focal point for the government's anti-cholera campaign.
