In Gambia, a beauty queen who says the president raped her when she was 18 years old testified Thursday to a public truth and reconciliation commission that is investigating the atrocities of former President Yahya Jammeh. Fatou “Toufah” Jallow has become a leading voice against the former president, who ruled the West African country of 2 million people for 22 years before his regime ended in 2017. Two other women have also come forward to accuse the former president of rape and sexual assault.
