Senegal protests

Heavy protests expected for today in Dakar after Friday prayers.

Below, a opposition supporter sets alight a road block during a protest against the candidature of the current president Abdoulaye Wade for a anti-constitutional third term as the head of state.

Tensions between police and opposition supporters have been high in the capital Dakar and other cities around the country, where some clashes have happen ahead of next Sunday's presidential elections. At least fourteen people have died so far.
