State Of Emergency Lifted In Gambia

The Gambia’s Parliament has scrapped the state of emergency it imposed last week in a failed bid to help strongman Yahya Jammeh stay in power, from the capital, Banjul.

A member of Mr. Jammeh’s party apologized for parliament’s decision to back the 90-day emergency, which Mr. Jammeh declared to prevent Adama Barrow from taking office, our correspondent adds.

Mr. Jammeh had rejected Mr. Barrow’s victory in the 1 December election but was forced into exile on Saturday.
