Muslim Island, Comoros Bans #BringBackOurGirls March
The majority Muslim island nation of the Comoros has banned a march over the abduction of the students of Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, by the Boko Haram sect.
The ban, according to the AFP, is amid accusations that the government wants to dodge religiously sensitive issues.
Officials in the capital Moroni rejected a request to march from children’s rights group, Maeecha, saying “it is not possible to grant you permission to walk in the streets of the capital, for reasons related to the circulation of traffic.”
But some non-government organisations accused the government of the Indian Ocean island of trying to silence debate on the actions of Islamist radicals.
