Mauritania says there’s no paper for printing independent newspapers. Independent newspapers in Mauritania say they’ve been doing without print editions for more than a week, allegedly because of a financial crisis at the government’s only official printing press. The reported lack of funds means there’s not been enough paper for all media outlets, so the press has printed only two official newspapers. Chouf TV said the Al-Akhbar newspaper was among those affected, while the government-aligned Al-Shaab and Horizon were unaffected. Normally, the state presses print about 10 paper-based newspapers and some other editorially independent products.
