Senegal apology amid protests against president
Senegal's government has apologised for a "police blunder" after tear gas was thrown into a mosque amid protests against President Abdoulaye Wade's re-election bid.
One person reportedly died on Sunday after a demonstration to condemn Friday's tear-gas incident in Dakar.
Six people have now been killed in anti-Wade protests this year, local media say.
Despite the protests, Mr Wade, 85, is standing in Sunday's election.
