Ruling Party Distances Itself From Attack On Newspaper

Zambia's ruling party, the Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD), on Friday denied that it had authorised any attack on the media, after claims that its supporters had attacked newspaper vendors.
'We are committed to a democratic regime and believe in the freedom of the press,' MMD spokesman Akashambatwa Mbikusita-Lewanika told IRIN.

The Post, a privately owned daily newspaper, alleged that supporters of the MMD had attacked its vendors and confiscated copies of the newspaper at its printing plant in the capital, Lusaka, on Wednesday morning.
