ECOWAS members are to choose a new chairman to replace outgoing Ghanaian President John Kufuor and discuss future security needs of the tumultuous region. According to sources within ECOWAS and its member-states, the next chairman is likely to be Mathieu Kerekou, veteran president of tiny, francophone Benin. AFP PHOTO / ISSOUF SANOGO
