Exiled Gambians fearful after failed coup

Critics of Gambia's president exiled in neighbouring Senegal say fear for their lives following recent failed coup.

    The United States and Senegal say they have arrested the Gambian dissidents involved in a plot to overthrow President Yahya Jammeh. 

    Gambian security officials foiled the coup attempt at the presidential palace late in December.

    Political opponents exiled in Senegal say that they no longer feel safe.
