    Gambia's new government is struggling to enforce its sovereignty in some areas still loyal to former President Yahya Jammeh.

    Clashes between pro-Jammeh protesters and a Senegal-led coalition of West African forces, who have been there to ensure a peaceful transition of power, left one dead and several injured in early June.

    Some residents accuse Senegalese troops of abusing people.

    Al Jazeera's Nicolas Haque reports from Jammeh's home town of Kanilai.
