Senegal students protest against rising costs

Protests force many universities to close as students argue rising costs make university education impossible.

    Students in Senegal have switched the classroom for the streets to protest against rising tuition fees.

    The government says it aims to provide the best education system on the continent, but students say rising costs mean many cannot afford to go to university.
