Voice of America is now offering special daily news broadcasts for mobile phone users in Mali, where Islamic militants in the north have clamped down on independent sources of information.

介于马里北部的伊斯兰武装已经控制了该地区的信息自由,美国之音将每日向马里的手机用户提供特殊的新闻广播服务。

“Mobile phones are the single best platform to share news and information in places like northern Mali,” according to Gwen Dillard, the Director of VOA’s Africa Division.

“手机现在是在马里北部分享新闻信息的最佳平台。”美国之音非洲分部的主管Gwen Dillard说。

“The audience for mobile broadcasts has been growing by leaps and bounds in Africa. It’s an excellent way to reach places where radio and television are subject to censorship and intimidation. Even in the most unstable regions, you find widespread use of mobile phones,” Dillard says.

“现在在非洲,美国之音手机听众的增长可谓是突飞猛进。在当前电台和电视节目受到严控和恐吓的状况下,手机收听节目可谓是打开了一扇新窗。即便在最不稳定的地区,手机用户依然大有人在。” Dillard 说。

The three-minute French-language mobile newscasts include on-the-ground reports from Bamako and the northern cities of Timbuktu, Gao, Kidal, and Mopti, as well as breaking news from the surrounding countries of Mauritania, Niger and Chad. The first broadcast included information about a recent Cholera outbreak.

美国之音三分钟的法语新闻播报涵盖了来自巴马科已经一些北部城市,如廷巴克图、高尔、基达尔和莫普蒂的现场报道,以及来自毛里塔尼亚、尼日利亚和乍得等周边国家的重大新闻。首次播音中,美国之音报道了最近的爆发的霍乱疫情。

The newscasts can be accessed on the mobile platform www.easyvoa.com

Many private radio stations have stopped broadcasting in northern Mali and the flow of information has been sharply limited since Islamic militants seized control of the region following a coup that overthrew Mali’s government earlier this year. Some independent reporters in the region have been assaulted and threatened by militants who have imposed strict Islamic law and shut down private radio stations.

自从今年初伊斯兰武装政变夺取了马里政权后,马里北部的诸多私人电台已被停播,信息的传播也受到严格限制。因该武装强行推行伊斯兰法律、禁止私人电台,一些该地区的独立撰稿人因此受到了袭击和威胁。

Voice of America’s French Service, which can be heard online, on shortwave and medium wave, has been providing extensive coverage of the situation in Mali and the neighboring countries.

美国之音节目的现已广泛覆盖了马里及周边国家。听众们可以通过短波和中波收听美国之音的法语节目。
