LOME, Togo – Amnesty International is calling on Togo's government to respect the right to demonstrate in the run-up to April 25 elections.
The international rights group on Tuesday warned against the excessive use of force. It said police used live rounds during a demonstration to support a teachers' strike in March, wounding at least 30 people in Glei, about 160 kilometers (100 miles) north of the capital, Lome.
