Plus ça change...

The seizure of the pan-African weekly Jeune Afrique (now L'Intelligent) whenever it wrote an unflattering story on Guinea or its regime was a regular feature of the country's first dictator Sékou Touré and little has changed since the facade of democracy introduced Gen. Lansana Conté.

The magazine recently did a in-depth feature on the seriously deteriorating economic and social situation in the country.

Apparently, the authorities in Conakry didn't appreciate the magazine's efforts.
