 Dear  netter:
  This news is posted  a year ago On BBC.  Aljazera also   covered  the news during the time . Since it is   visiting  several times  over , you  see  it  on  our   popular  blog page. 

According to  news from BBC, there is unusual military movement in the capital city and the Ministry of Information and communication building is surrounded by group of solders. The report further said that the daily state TV program has been taken off from the air and the websites of key Eritrean state and ruling party media are currently operating unreliably, with the site for the ruling People's Front for Democracy and Justice (PFDJ) party inaccessible. Observers said that there seems to be a significant sign of military coup underway in  the city since most kinds of takeover operations of this nature carry on first by controlling the communication building. So far it is not still clear  weather the coup is successful and is no justification  was given  by the third party. The news further stated that a statement has reportedly been read out on state radio and television calling for the implementation of the country's 1997 constitution. Stay tuned for latest update.


As a follow up of the latest incident Aljazeera reported an hour ago that Adam said Haj Moussa, Secretary-General of the Eritrean National Front for Change opposition Eritrean Defense Minister and Chief of Staff , and Commander of the Air Force were killed today by snipers in the capital, Asmara. Some news agencies who quoted diplomatic sources described the coup move is triggered by opposition rebels not by faction of Eritrean army; there is no settled news so far. The Government of Eretria neither denied nor confirmed the overthrow attempt. One thing which is clear now is that The current president of Eretria and General secretary of PFDJ is not in the capital , He left Asmara earlier for Meswea for a so called working visit. Stay tuned    ***

***  The following is a report by Jeffery Gettleman from New York Times ,

According to several people with close contacts inside Eritrea, the coup attempt failed, with government troops quelling the would-be rebellion and no one rising up in the streets. But many analysts said it was only a matter of time before President Isaias Afwerki, Eritrea’ s brash and steely leader for the past 20 years, is overthrown — and most likely from within. ***
