Senegal: Authorities sweeping child beggars off streets
The Phuket News – August 21, 2016
In recent weeks, packs of shoeless boys and girls have been coaxed off the streets of the Senegalese capital Dakar where they have spent their childhoods, crying and frightened as they are loaded onto buses. The crackdown on child begging comes after years of inaction and has been praised by children’s groups but greeted with anger by powerful Islamic figures in the west African nation.
