Increasing ethnic violence has taken scores of lives and shattered the calm of Senegal, long admired as one of Africa's most tranquil and homogeneous countries. The violence is centered in a region known as the Casamance, which is geographically and culturally isolated from the rest of the country and has nurtured separatist sentiment for decades. Since April, at least 76 people--civilians, guerrillas and government soldiers--have been killed and hundreds injured in the Casamance.
