ANEHO, 10 May (IRIN) - School classrooms are half-empty, the once bustling city market is deserted and security has been tightened in this coastal town that saw some of Togo's worst election violence two weeks ago.
At the entrance to Aneho, 45 km east of the capital Lome, police manning checkpoints were checking car boots this week for suspicious luggage, highlighting the political tension that persists in Togo in the wake of a disputed 24 April presidential election.
In Aneho many of those who fled were young supporters of his opposition rival Emmanuel Bob-Akitani who had been manning the barricades.
