Deadly clashes in anti-Wade protest in Senegal

Two people have been killed in the Senegalese capital during a demonstration against President Abdoulaye Wade's re-election bid.

Police and thousands of opposition supporters clashed in the centre of the city on Tuesday evening.

Tear gas was fired and one student died when he was run over by a truck.

Earlier in the week, two people were shot dead during protests in a northern town after a court ruled that Mr Wade's third-term election bid was legal.

Andrew Harding reports.
