Two radio journalists held for three hours

(RSF/IFEX) - Reporters Without Borders condemns the detention of Radio One editor Karishma Beeharry and Humaira Ali, a member of the privately-owned station's staff, on 14 March 2008 after they broadcast a report that the cabinet would not meet that day because the prime minister was apparently ill.
