CPJ - Abuja, Nigeria, June 10, 2014--The Committee to Protect Journalists welcomes today's ruling by a West African regional court, which found that the Gambian government failed to conduct a meaningful investigation into the murder of journalist Deyda Hydara. The ruling is the first ECOWAS case relating to the murder of a Gambian journalist.
Hydara, the founder of the independent newspaper The Point, was shot dead by unidentified assailants as he drove home from his office in the capital, Banjul, on December 16, 2004. Hydara, a regular critic of President Yahya Jammeh's harsh policies, had received multiple death threats in the months leading up to his death. His murder remains unsolved.

The North Bank Evening Standard (TNBES) has announced Tuesday it will bring its audience special coverage of the 2014 FIFA World Cup with specific focus on Africa’s five representatives: Algeria, Cameroon, Ghana, Ivory Coast and Nigeria.
The blog ‘Telling the stories of Africa to over 1 billion Africans’ stated it is committed to bringing home in a unique style the actions involving African teams in Brazil in a form of summary-reports and photos.
TNBES editor and publisher, Modou S. Joof, explains: “We will not bore you with who has taken a throw-in or goal-kick or those long, boring reads of minute by minute match reports.
“This is simply going to be summarized reports telling exactly what you need to know: the winner, the goals and goal scorers, red cards, controversies if there is and who is kicked out of the finals.

He also told journalists that Jammeh has given him the Gambia name Sainey Jammeh and his daughter Empress Reggae is now knows as Awa Jammeh.
The singer said he has composed a new song for President Jammeh called “grow what you eat and eat what you grow” – a usual phrase that Jammeh uses almost daily in his call on Gambian to “go back to the land” and food sufficiency plans.
