DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — A media rights group says that a Malian newspaper editor, who was arrested two weeks ago after publishing a letter criticizing the salary of the nation's coup leader, has been charged with "inciting disobedience" and "publishing falsehoods."
Reporters Without Borders said that Boukary Daou, the editor-in-chief of The Republican newspaper, was charged Monday. He was transferred to the central prison in Bamako. Daou was arrested on March 6 after his newspaper published a letter signed by an army captain criticizing Capt. Amadou Haya Sanogo's more than $8,000-a-month salary, a lofty sum in the poor country.
The captain said soldiers under his command will abandon the battlefield if Sanogo's salary is not reduced.
Sanogo led a coup a year ago, overturning two decades of democracy and plunging Mali into crisis.
