Burkina Faso bans French newspaper Le Monde

Source The Ghana Report

The military rulers in Burkina Faso have suspended distribution of the French daily newspaper, Le Monde, over an article on a deadly Islamist attack in the north of the country.

The Communication Minister Rimtalba Jean Emmanuel Ouédraogo described the article about an attack on a military base a week ago as “biased”.

The UN says at least 40 civilians were killed, whereas security sources in Burkina Faso spoke of a “few” military deaths.

The Burkinabè authorities have suspended several French media outlets in recent months – including the broadcaster RFI and political magazine Jeune Afrique.

Relations between Burkina Faso and former colonial power France plummeted after the military seized power in a coup last year citing failing efforts to quash a jihadist insurgency that erupted in 2015.

On Saturday, Burkina Faso and Niger said they were pulling out of the French-backed G5 Sahel force.
