A Gambian and a native of Pirang, Abdoulie Njie, was allegedly killed in Casamance during a reported military attack in a rebel zone.

A close relative of the deceased in Pirang confirmed the news to The Standard yesterday evening. Njie died a few days ago after Senegalese soldiers allegedly attacked a rebel base in Casamance.
