Violent protests erupt in Senegal amid state of emergency

Jun 4, 2020, 10:48 AM

Violent protest occurred in Senegal on Tuesday in many cities and towns following the introduction of the state of emergency and curfew three months ago.

The protesters were the drivers and several youths who claimed that they have not been working for the past three months and that they are finding it hard to feed their families.

Government must lift the state of emergency and the curfew, protesters say.

In Touba, a youth mob confronted security forces, in which they burnt an ambulance and a government office in Tivaoune, a religious city and Tamba, the eastern part of Senegal as violent troubles were noted.

Meanwhile yesterday the Senegalese Ministry of Health recorded 96 positive cases of covid-19, which brings the country’s total infection to 3,932, with 73% being from Dakar, 2,063 recovered, 45 deaths and 1,823 under treatment including 13 in severe condition.
