Dakar 4th June 2011, Jeff Attaway

Took these after the trouble died down.
Senegal and Cameroon played in Yaounde for an African Cup of Nations qualifier match. As everyone was watching the match in the Ngor area of Dakar, the power went out. Local youth took to the streets to vent their anger. Rocks were thrown at passing cars/local businesses and they blocked the Route de Ngor by burning tires and rubbish in the roads. Trouble lasted less than an hour because the riot police took control of the area.

Many protest lately in Dakar due to the increased cost of living and the frequent power outages.
