Tens of thousands of people have marched through the streets of Togo's
capital, Lomé, protesting against President Faure Gnassingbé.

The number of demonstrators is said to be unprecedented. The internet
has been severely restricted.

A government concession to introduce a two-term presidential limit
through a constitutional amendment failed to dissuade the protesters.

They want Mr Gnassingbé, who has been in power since 2005, to step down.

He became president after the death of his father, Gnassingbé Eyadema,
who had been at the helm for 38 years. Protesters are calling for the
end of the "Gnassingbé dynasty".


Internet speeds are said to be slow and access to social media
platforms limited.
