In January, authorities on the semi-autonomous island of Anjouan ordered the suspension of all news broadcasts on Radio Dzialandzé Mutsamudu (RDM), a popular, privately owned station that is a rare independent source of local and international news for the island's residents. The order stemmed from a recent RDM interview with a doctor who defended a strike by the island's medical personnel; government officials had previously criticized the strike. The suspension was lifted two weeks later.
