Catholic broadcasts barred after coup in Guinea-Bissau
April 16, 2012
Radio Sol Mansi, the Catholic broadcast station in Guinea-Bissau, has been shut down by the military leaders who seized power after a coup on April 13.
A military junta took control just before a run-off presidential election. The new leaders promptly closed the country’s borders and halted all radio and television broadcasts. The situation in the African country remains unclear, with little news available to the outside world about the junta's intentions.
