Oil sanctions bite as Russia raises taxes

Plus, the BBC's Catherine Byaruhanga reports from the South Sudan town of Renk as efforts to broker a peace deal in neighboring Sudan get underway. And, who are the business winners and losers of public holidays? The BBC's Elizabeth Hotson reports from the UK, which has three such holidays this month.
