Serious business and human rights are dominating discussion and debate at the fifth session of the Pan African Parliament (PAP), which kicked off on Monday, but a bevy of African beauties are not only adding colour to proceedings - they are also showcasing traditional costumes from around the continent. 

The fifth session of PAP being held at the Gallagher Conference Centre ends next Friday, 20 October.
