    The Gambia has started a four-day week for public sector workers, with Fridays now an extra day off.

    President Yahya Jammeh has said the shorter week will give The Gambia’s mainly Muslim population more time to pray, socialise and tend to fields.

    Mr Jammeh, who took power in a bloodless coup in 1994, is known for his eccentric behaviour.
