Senegal to beef up military as security threat grows

Senegal President Macky Sall (R) reviews an honour guard in Dakar on April 4, 2016Senegal’s president said Monday he would boost manpower and equipment for military and civil defence forces in the face of increasingly bold attacks by jihadists on neighbouring countries. The west African nation has until now avoided the kind of deadly attacks mounted by Al-Qaeda-linked groups that have claimed dozens of lives in Burkina Faso, Mali and most recently Ivory Coast. “I have decided to strengthen the human and material resources of all our defence and security forces to adapt to new challenges,” said President Macky Sall during a speech to mark the 56th anniversary of Senegal’s independence from France.
