Adama Barrow sworn in as Gambian president in ceremony in Senegal

Adama Barrow has been sworn in as the president of Gambia in a ceremony in Senegal as Yahya Jammeh refuses to give up power.

Gambia was elected in a vote last month but Jammeh contested the result in a bid to continue his two-decade rule.

Neighbouring Senegal along with a coalition of African countries have sought to put pressure on Jammeh, including threatening military intervention.
