Rising sea levels threaten Senegal city

Saint Louis, a UNESCO heritage site, is under threat from rising sea levels.

    Delegates of the UNESCO World Heritage committee are meeting in Doha, Qatar.
     
    They are discussing ways to protect the world's most threatened sites.
     
    One of them is Saint Louis - a city in Senegal that's being damaged by rising sea levels.

    In 2008, the United Nations reported that Saint Louis is Africa’s most threatened city.
