France's conservative presidential candidate Francois Fillon tells French television he will not pull out of the race, despite an impending criminal investigation into payments he made to members of his family for alleged fake jobs. Also on the programme: street protests in Belarus over a so-called "social parasite tax". And international cricketers return to Pakistan after almost a decade.
