    ERITREA: Social media services blocked

    Social media services have been blocked in Eritrea, with people now sending messages via VPN.

    The reason for the shutdown is unclear, but speculation is that the government has blocked social media sites to prevent people from using them to organise protests that could disrupt Independence Day celebrations on 24 May.

    Discontent about the lack of political reform is growing in Eritrea, a one-party state ruled by President Isaias Afwerki since independence in 1993.
