Watchdog Calls for Lifting of Tanzanian Newspaper Ban

The Committee to Protect Journalists has said authorities in Tanzania should lift a seven-day publication ban on the privately owned newspaper, The Citizen, and allow journalists to report on matters of public interest freely. The suspension order relates to an article on the state of Tanzanian democracy, published in July, and an article on the country's currency, published last month.
