Libreville: A Chadian journalist has been released without charge after four days in detention over the publication of an article criticising the country's president, he said yesterday. Daniel Ngadjadoum, a contributor to Chadian newspaper Tribune Info, was released on Wednesday "on order of the prosecutor", he said by phone from his nation's capital N'Djamena. The Paris-based Reporters Without Borders (RSF) media rights watchdog had condemned his detention in a statement.
