Rebellion in Madagascar spreads from the capital

.- Salesian missionaries in Madagascar have announced through the Salesian Info Agency that the violent rebellion against the government has spread from the capital of Antananarivo to surrounding provinces, causing death and destruction.

“The only radio on the air is Radio Don Bosco, it is the only source of information for all of Madagascar that has been spared from the vandalism of the masses,” the Salesians said, adding that all television stations, including those of the state, have gone off the air.

“In the city all of the large stores are closed, very few retail businesses remain open, and malls have been looted and set on fire, especially those owned by President Marc Ravalomanana,” the missionaries reported. “Some basic items such as oil and flour cannot be obtained.  Gas stations have run out and people stand in line to wait for new shipments,” they added.

Cardinal Armand Razafindratandra, Archbishop emeritus of the capital, has appealed for calm.
