Senegal prime minister'sacked'

Senegal's Prime Minister Aminata Toure, who has only been in power since September 2013, has been removed from office less than a week after her ruling party was beaten in local elections.

Toure "is no longer prime minister, she was sacked," said one of her advisors. According to another of her officials, Toure was sacked by President Macky Sall who "asked her to leave". State media was also reporting she had left the government.
