Clashes after Ousmane Sonko's arrest in Dakar, Senegal

DW, 05 Mar 2021
Senegal's main opposition leader Ousmane Sonko has spent a night in police custody. Sonko was arrested on charges of disturbing the public order. It came as hundreds of his supporters clashed with police while he was heading to court to face rape charges. Sonko denies the claims against him, saying they are politically motivated. Senegal's national assembly stripped Sonko of his legal immunity last week, paving the way for a police investigation.
