Benin's lucrative used car trade

The small West African country of Benin has become one of the main destinations for second-hand cars, coming from Europe and the US.

But not for long, as most of those cars are on their way to Nigeria.

Sophie Ribstein reports for Africa Business Report from the port of Cotonou.
