In Senegal, at least five people, including a young boy, have been killed amid days of clashes between security forces and protesters. Protests erupted last Wednesday over the arrest of opposition leader Ousmane Sonko, who is expected to be a key challenger for President Macky Sall when elections take place in three years. Sonko has been accused of rape by a woman who worked at a massage parlor, though he has denied the charge. Protesters are also calling out the country’s economic troubles, the lack of jobs and the presidency of Sall.
