Travellers using Senegal's International airport in the capital Dakar have been warned not to take Galaxy Note 7 smartphones on board.
The warning comes after South Korean tech giant Samsung announced yesterday that it is permanently ceasing production of its high-end Galaxy Note 7 smartphones after reports that the device could catch fire.
A notice has been placed at vantage points at the airport to warn travellers.
