Anti-Jammeh radio station shut in Gambia

The authorities in The Gambia have shut down a popular radio station critical of long-serving ruler Yahya Jammeh.

A BBC report said that intelligence agents ordered Teranga FM’s closure without giving reasons, said Emil Touray, the head of the Gambia Press Union.

This is the first sign of a crackdown on the media since Mr Jammeh rejected defeat in the 1 December poll.
Mr Jammeh first seized power in a bloodless coup in 1994.
