Togo: opposition split fuels unrest
One of the poorest countries in the world, Togo has been riddled with political tensions since presidential elections in March saw the return of military-backed Faure Gnassingbe. But recently, there has been more unrest in the capital Lome - the opposition party UFC is divided over the decision of its leader Gilchrist Olympio to join forces with the government. So does this split in the opposition work in the government's favour?
