FOCAC summit begins with Joburg tour

To get a feel for the melting pot that is Johannesburg and the ever-vibrant Soweto, journalists from China, Africa and South Africa took a tour of the city and its huge neighbour ahead of the FOCAC summit. It will culminate in a meeting between the South African and Chinese heads of state.
