    Opposition leaders in Togo said at least three people were shot dead on the third day of anti-government protests rocking the country.

    Protesters are demanding constitutional reforms, including changes to presidential term limits.

    Opposition leaders say that instead of listening to the demands of the people, the government has orchestrated a brutal crackdown.
