At least four people have been killed across the small West African nation of Togo in clashes between security forces and protesters demanding an end to the rule of President Faure Gnassingbe.

在非洲西部国家多哥,至少4人死于安全部队和抗议者的冲突。抗议者要求停止纳辛贝总统的执政。

Security Minister Colonel Damehame Yark said Wednesday that one person was shot dead in the capital, Lome, while three others were killed in Togo's second-largest city of Sokode, located more than 300 kilometers north of Lome.

安全部长亚尔克上校星期三说,在首都洛美,一人被枪打死,三人在离洛美300多公里的多哥第二大城市索科德丧生。

Yark says 60 demonstrators were arrested in Wednesday's clashes.

亚尔克说,星期三的冲突中,有60名抗议者被逮捕。

Opposition leaders have planned two days of demonstrations against President Gnassingbe, who has been in power since 2005, succeeding his late father. Protests have broken out across Togo since August over the current president's proposal to amend the constitution by removing presidential term limits, which could potentially allow him to stay in office until at least 2030.

反对派领导人计划连续两天举行反对纳辛贝总统的视为。纳辛贝总统2005年接替他的父亲担任总统,从那以来一直执政。今年8月,纳辛贝总统提议修改宪法,取消对总统任期的限制,这样他有可能执政到2030年。随后在戈多各地爆发了抗议活动。

The elder Gnassingbe himself served as president of Togo from 1968 until his death.
