Uganda oil project: Drilling underway amid legal challenge in France


A huge oil development project in Uganda is meeting stiff resistance from a number of NGOs. The country wants to produce 1.4 billion barrels in the next two decades, part of which would be shipped abroad through a pipeline connecting Uganda and Tanzania -- that project is also in the works. FRANCE 24's Camille Knight tells us more.
