Dakar - A Senegalese man died in a Dakar suburb after he was accidentally wounded during clashes between police and protestors, a religious leader was quoted on Monday as saying by the state news agency APS.

"The victim was not demonstrating, he had gone to the bakery to buy bread," Abdoul Aziz Ndoye, a Muslim cleric and the young man's tutor, said. It was the second death in a weekend of violence ahead of presidential elections.
