Togo poll sees 22 people dead

 article about Gnassingbe


Togo, Africa

Voting in Togo is a dangerous business.  22 people are reported to have been killed and another 100 injured in clashes during the presidential poll.

Riot police battled angry opposition supporters, but the ruling party candidate Faure Gnassingbe won the poll.

The country has been in an uproar since the death of Gnassingbe Eyadema (Faure Gnassingbe's father) on 5 February.  He ruled the country for over 37 years with army commanders and the Togolese People's Rally (RPT).
