Thieves at work? Daily Summit receives an email from the people behind Terra Viva newspaper, accusing shadowy, and possibly Tunisian, figures of making off with huge numbers of their newspapers.

"A woman who identified herself as an architect from Tunisia took an estimated 1,000 copies "for her friends" and responded angrily when questioned...

"Two women stuffed plastic bags full of newspapers. They hurried away when questioned... Three people from Tunisia attacked [two of the papers journalists] saying that in the newspaper there were lots of lies about their country. Then tried to steal about three hundreds of copies."

Terra Viva has been quite critical of Tunisia - controversial host of WSIS-the-sequel in 2005. Perhaps this is a ham-fisted attempt to hush up criticism. Of course, it also excellent publicity for Terra Viva...
