Gambia Opens Yahya Jammeh's Can of Worms

The country's Truth Reconciliation and Reparations Commission has opened hearings into abuses carried out during former president Yahya Jammeh's more than two decades in power. He is accused of killing journalists, torturing and killing political opponents, and sponsoring a campaign that allowed so-called "witch doctors" to abduct hundreds of people and force them to drink unknown substances.
