Three people have reportedly died in Senegal on Friday after clashes between the police and the opposition protesters.

The opposition coalition ‘Yewwi Askan called for a protest on Friday against a decision to bar a list of its candidates for Senegal’s legislative elections on July 31.

The police action came after the opposition called for protests at a time when the country is in the grip of pre-election tension.
