Three Senegalese midwives involved in the death of a woman in labour have been found guilty of not assisting someone in danger.
Reports say, they received six-months suspended sentences after the woman, Astou Sokhna died while reportedly begging for a caesarean session.
According to the reports, her unborn child also died.
Three other midwives who were also on trial were not found guilty.
The case caused a national outcry with the President, Macky Sali ordering an investigation.
Mrs. Sokhna was in her thirties when she passed away at a hospital in the northern town of Louga.
