    West African leaders from the regional group ECOWAS are calling on Togo's President Faure Gnassingbe to do more to resolve the country's political crisis.

    At least 10 people have been killed in anti-government protests since August amid growing frustration over delayed constitutional reforms.

    Faure Gnassingbe took power in 2005, cementing his family's 50-year rule. It is Africa's longest-ruling dynasty.
