Burkina Faso’s military junta has suspended the French-language news magazine Jeune Afrique, accusing it of publishing untruthful articles.

A statement said the publication was seeking to discredit the armed forces and manipulating information to spread chaos.

The accusations relate to two recently published pieces reporting discontent in the military.

The magazine’s suspension is the latest of a crackdown on French-language media since Burkina Faso’s military took over rule last year.

Jeune Afrique has yet to respond.
