Bissau (Agenzia Fides) – Even Radio Sol Mansi, the Catholic radio station in Guinea Bissau, is among the broadcasting stations blocked by the military junta that took power with the coup on April 13. The is reported to Fides sources by Radio Sol Mansi, which state: "The military had allowed the resumption of private radio stations broadcast only for a few hours, then they prohibited again."
There is a stiffening of the position of the military coup, in front of the international reaction. "Land, sea and air borders are closed again as a reaction to the decision of Portugal (the former colonial power) to send some warships in the area as a precautionary measure to evacuate their citizens," the sources told Fides.
Meanwhile, the coup junta has announced the dissolution of all the institutions and the creation of a National Transitional Council (NTC), for which formation is under way today, for talks with political parties. (L.M.) (Agenzia Fides 16/4/2012)
