The main opposition party in Senegal says its leader, Ousmane Sonko, has ended a hunger strike he began following his arrest in late July.

Mr Sonko, a fierce critic of President Macky Sall, had been charged with insurrection, undermining state security and terrorist activity.

He had already been banned from standing in next year’s presidential election after a court sentenced him to two years in prison for morally corrupting a young woman.

Muslim leaders had urged him to end his hunger strike.

He was admitted to intensive care unit last month after his health deteriorated.
