The trial of RFI's Hausa-language correspondent in Cameroon, Ahmed Abba, has been postponed for a month, by which date he will have spent 17 months in prison, because experts had failed to provide a report on the contents of his computers and mobile phone at today's hearing. France Médias Monde again called for his release and the dismissal of complicity with terrorism charges.
Central African Republic Prime Minister Nicolas Tiangaye has appealed for the help of France and of a regional African force to combat following last month’s rebel takeover.
Tiangaye made the appeal to France and the multinational African peacekeeping force, Fomac, in a radio-television address late Tuesday, after around 20 people were killed at the weekend in Bangui amid clashes between former rebels and residents.
"Faced with this grave situation, I appeal for the support of... Fomac and France, as impartial forces, to lead security operations in the city of Bangui and all the regions of our country," he said.
