"Senegalese world music star Youssou N'dour said he will stand in next month's presidential elections, mounting a high-profile challenge to the West African state's veteran leader Abdoulaye Wade. N'dour has been a vocal critic of President Wade who is hoping to extend his 11-year rule by getting re-elected in February against a field of about a dozen rivals." (01/03/12)
