Ghanaian human rights groups want Ex-Gambian leader Yahya Jammeh extradited for 2005 killings +++ UN says 160,000 displaced in Anglophone Cameroon +++ South Sudan turns to comedy as tool for bringing peace
Gambian President Adama Barrow might have managed to succeed his rival, longtime leader Yahya Jammeh, but the West African nation remains divided along ethnic lines. Jammeh's supporters want him returned in dignity.
The protracted leadership crisis in Gambia has come to an end. Former leader Yahya Jammeh has finally stepped down and new President Adama Barrow has taken office. DW's Adrian Kriesch reports from Banjul.
Gambian President Yahya Jammeh has condemned mediation efforts by the African regional bloc ECOWAS that aims to get him to leave power. The opposition said Jammeh would not face prosecution on leaving office.
West African troops have reportedly halted their advance in Gambia to bolster mediation efforts. Thousands of soldiers from Senegal, Ghana and Nigeria have mobilized to pressure Yahya Jammeh to step down.
