Senegal's Youssou Ndour holds election concert

Senegal has a new president, Macky Sall, and last night thousands of people gathered in the capital to celebrate with Youssou Ndour.

The world famous musician had been very vocal in his opposition to former president Abdoulaye Wade, and had attempted to run for president himself.

The BBC's Maude Julien was at the concert last night in Dakar's Obelisque square.
