Togo's fight for change

March 4: Togo heads to the polls to elect a new President. Incumbent Faure Gnassingbé is seeking another term, after the army installed him as leader in 2005 following the death of his father. He held onto power during elections held a few weeks later, but these were contested by the opposition as being fraudulent and hundreds of people died in post election violence. Authorities now believe radical groups are preparing an uprising in case the vote doesn't turn out the way they want it to.
