Senegalese Youths Arrested for Breaking Virus Curfew
A total of 74 young Senegalese people were arrested on Apr. 21. They broke the curfew that was made by the government to curb COVID-19. According to Senegal’s national police, they were just hanging out on the street. Although this law was enacted to prevent the spread of COVID-19, critics say this goes against democracy. The majority of critics seem to believe the government can encourage its citizens to behave in a certain way but can never force them.
