Small arms and light weapons (SALW) are causing a lot of damage in Senegal.
According to the Movement Against Small Arms in West Africa (Malao), between 2019 and 2020, more than 100 people will be killed by small arms and light weapons in armed violence in Senegal.
Hundreds of millions of CFA francs are also lost, according to Malao figures reported by the daily Libération.
The most vulnerable region is Dakar and its departments, and the Louga and Ziguinchor regions in general.
Africa has 100 million SALW, with 90% of war victims being women and children, most of whom are killed by these weapons.
