Fiji newspaper digs at interim govt with lead story: Man gets on bus

One of Fiji's leading newspapers is poking fun at its interim government's tight media restrictions with a front-page story about a man getting on a bus.

The Fiji Daily Post story on Wednesday read, "In what is believed to be the first reported incident of its kind - a man got on a bus yesterday."

"It was easy he said, I just lifted up one foot and then the other and I was on."

It follows the country's military ruler Frank Bainimarama posting censors in the offices of newspapers and radio and television stations, and ordering foreign journalists off shore.

Another headline included "Breakfast as usual for the staff at this newspaper" and reported one colleague having leftovers from last night's dinner.
