Senegal / President Wade asked to intervene after two newspapers ransacked

 

DAKAR, Sénégal, August 20, 2008/African Press Organization (APO)/ — Reporters Without Borders has written to President Abdoulaye Wade about the ransacking of the premises of two Dakar-based dailies – L’As and 24 heures – on the night of 17 August amid mounting tension between the privately-owned press and Farba Senghor, the minister of handicraft and air transport.

 

The letter asks President Wade to “do everything possible to ensure that the situation improves and that those responsible for these illegal actions are punished.”
