Colonel Mohamed Bacar speaks to journali

Colonel Mohamed Bacar speaks to journalists on February 15, 2008 in the Comoran island of Anjouan. The African Union extended on February 19, 2008 by two months sanctions slapped on the rebellious Comoran isle of Anjouan in the Indian Ocean. The island of Anjouan, which together with Grande Comore and Moheli form the Union of Comoros, has been at loggerheads with union's president and the AU since it defiantly held local presidential polls last year. Colonel Mohamed Bacar was re-elected president of the island of Anjouan in June 2007, but the ballot was recognised neither by the African Union nor the federal government. Bacar has refused to organise new elections and clung to power. The Comoros, a former French colony home to an estimated 630,000 residents, has endured 19 coups or coup attempts since independence in 1975. Its current federal structure arose from AU-backed efforts to end island feuds. AFP PHOTO/Yousuf IBRAHIM (Photo credit should read YOUSUF IBRAHIM/AFP/Getty Images)
