Solar power aids football fans

Faced with lack of electricity, South African villagers use solar power to watch World Cup.

    The South African village of Jericho lies just over 70km from the city of Pretoria.

    But like millions of other South Africans, residents of Jericho have limited or no electricity.

    Jericho's residents are now watching the football World Cup, courtesy solar power.
