Two Senegalese opposition members of parliament, Mamadou Niang and Massata Samb, have been sentenced to six months in jail for physically attacking a female colleague during a parliamentary session.
Late last year, a video surfaced on social media showing pro-government legislator, Amy Ndiaye, being slapped and kicked in the belly during a session in the National Assembly that had turned violent.
The case drew attention from beyond Senegalese borders and is said to have sparked a debate about democracy in the country. MP Ndiaye was pregnant at the time of the assault.
Both men were also fined 100,000 CFA francs each and ordered to pay five million francs in damages.
