Former warlord running for president in Congo

The president of the Democratic Republic of the Congo will not seek re-election in December. This could signal a peaceful transition of power in the country for the first time. This comes as former warlord Jean-Pierre Bemba hopes to become the country's next leader. The International Criminal Court convicted Bemba of war crimes in 2016, but he was acquitted in June. CBS News foreign correspondent Debora Patta joins CBSN to discuss the latest as Congo struggles to contain a new Ebola outbreak.
