[News] Senegalese Troops Enter Gambia To Force Jammeh To Hand Over Power


The soldiers have also launched strikes against Gambia in a move to force out the sit-tight Yahya Jammeh, who has refused to vacate the presidential seat after 22 years in office.
The African Union and the ECOWAS earlier mobilised to force Jammeh out of office in the face of heightened tension.
Reuters also quoted Colonel Abdou Ndiaye of Senegal's army as confirming that an ECOWAS regional force has begun strikes in an operation code-named: 'Restore Democracy'.
Though there were no details, Ndiaye said significant land, air and sea resources had been made available.
