Starting 21 January 2013 there has been a concerted and coordinated disinformation campaign by the media about the situation in Eritrea and the so-called “attempted military coup d’état”.

There has never been an “attempted military coup” and there will never be a coup d’état in Eritrea. It is the wishful thinking of some quarters. I say this with impunity. You might say why not? It is a legitimate question.
