Senegal troops 'enter Gambia' in bid to get former leader to leave
Senegal's army spokesman said its troops have entered Gambia to get former leader Yahya Jammeh to cede power to the country's newly inaugurated president.
A West African regional force, including Senegalese troops, had been poised on Gambia's borders and moved in on Thursday, shortly after the UN Security Council expressed "full support" for Gambia's new president, Adama Barrow, and called on Mr Jammeh to respect his election loss.
Mr Barrow was inaugurated in a hastily arranged ceremony in Gambia's embassy in Senegal shortly before the UN vote.
Mr Jammeh has not been heard from since his mandate expired at midnight.
