Madagascar: Malagasy Armed Forces confined in their barracks




All non-commissioned members are confined in their barracks since this weekend and staff on leave were recalled, according to sources close to the Malagasy Armed Forces and relayed by the Midi Madagasikara newspaper earlier this week.
 
Rumours of a possible military coup d'Etat should have brought the heads of the army to put the troops on alert.
 
For several weeks, the possibility of a reversal by the weapons of the power in place by non-commissioned officers and ranks remained loyal to Andry Rajoelina runs strongly in the island.
 
However, according to several local observers the maneuver simply aim to discredit the former president of the Transition and get the progress of certain senior officers.
