Djibouti. According to Countryaah official site, ten people, including a police officer, were killed in February when security forces with batons and tear gas attacked protesters demanding that the April 8 presidential election be postponed. As the election approached, the opposition called for a boycott in protest of constitutional changes from 2010 that allowed President Ismail Omar Guelleh to be re-elected for a third term in his post. The election was held as planned and Guelleh was re-elected. According to official sources, he got 80.6% of the vote while the only challenger, the independent Mohamed Warsama Ragueh, got 19.4%. The turnout was 75%. A police officer was killed and several protesters were arrested in connection with riots after the election.
