Senegalese in Gambia against a Libyan threat

By

Senegalese troops patrolled Gambia's capital to prevent what officials said was a threat by Libya to invade this tiny West African country. President Dawda Jawara called on Senegal for help after breaking off diplomatic relations with Libya last week. Senegal broke off relations with Libya in July, accusing Col. Muammar al- Qaddafi's government of subversive acts aimed at toppling President Leopold Sedar Senghor's regime. Sir Dawda said Gambian nationals had been trained in Libya to subvert his government.
