Gambia Court issues warrant against accused two ex-army officers

A Gambian court has issued an arrest warrant for two former army officers suspected in the 2004 shooting to death of a journalist.

The warrant is for Sanna Manjang and Kawsu Camara, who are reportedly out of the West African country.

Deyda Hydara was co-founder and managing editor of The Point newspaper and a correspondent for Agence France Presse and Reporters without Borders.

He was killed just outside Banjul, the capital in what the Human rights groups called a well-planned killing.

Meanwhile, Gambia’s information minister earlier this month said there will be no amnesty for crimes committed under former President Yahya Jammeh’s two-decade rule.
