"Spring" wind blows into Senegal streets
This weekend's election in Senegal isn't passing the smell test with some, and now there's a whiff of Arab Spring in the air.
It's an old story. A president comfortable in power tries engineering more of it.
But that didn't sit well with a small band of disaffected Senegalese young people, and it's morphed into a movement, spilling into the streets of this small African country.
It's a call out a president reneging on his promise to resign.
And we found Canadian journalist Amanda Fortier in with the ringleaders.
