Time to go: ABC thrown out of Iran

Middle East correspondent Ben Knight is leaving Iran after journalists were ordered out of the country and told not to report on unauthorised gatherings. Here he describes how it is getting harder to get information out of Iran about the protests.

“Today we were told by the Islamic Guidance Ministry and its agency that looks after the press that our press cards have been revoked. They still have, I think, about 12 days to run. But all foreign journalists have had their credentials cancelled. READ THE FULL REPORT

Northern Uganda:  GULU, 12 June 2009 (IRIN) – The Ugandan army says it has detained 11 people over alleged rebel activity in the north of the country. Uganda army and defence spokesman Maj Felix Kulayigye said the 11 were coordinators of a new rebel group. He said five had been arrested in Gulu and Pader districts of the Acholi sub-region, which was the epicentre of the conflict pitting government forces against the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) from the late 1980s well into this century, and that weapons and communications equipment had been unearthed in Pader. Ulayigye said six others were detained in Rhino camp in Masindi District, western Uganda, with guns and solar panels. The Gulu resident district commissioner, retired Col Walter Ochora,said those detained include former senior LRA fighters who had surrendered in 2007 and joined the regular army or who had been granted amnesty. Treason charge According to Kulayigye, the six held in Masindi would be charged with treason. “We have taken the files of those we arrested in Gulu and Pader to the director of public prosecution for advice. They are also preferably going to be charged with treason,” he said. Asked what the name of this new rebel group is, Kulayigye said: “They are still in initial stages. They are still proposing the name of their rebel group,” he said. “We are aware of some politicians in Gulu and those in the diaspora who are behind these new rebel activities in northern Uganda. They feel discredited by the LRA,” Kulayigye said.For more information visit our
