LE FLEUVE N’EST PAS UNE FRONTIÈRE
In 1989, after a clash near the border between Mauritanian shepherds and Senegalese peasants, there was an escalation of racist violence in both countries. These events caused thousands of deaths and tens of thousands of refugees. Today, despite appearances, the wounds have not healed.
Alassane Diago was born in 1985 in Agnam Lidoubé, Senegal.
