Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

A Web site in Fiji is reporting a blow-by-blow account of the coup d'etat currently gripping the Pacific island republic.

Fijilive.com has been reporting the events as they unfurl following the appointment of Fijian Association Party MP, Ratu Timoci Silatolu, as interim prime minister.

Activists cut telephone lines to the outside world moments before they seized control of the Fijian Parliament making communications with the country difficult.

Fijilive.com carried a short statement by George Speight, who claims to be the driving force behind the coup.

He said: "Through these actions I am asserting ownership, am asserting control and I am asserting executive power over Fiji. We have revoked the Constitution and have set that aside. We have revoked the powers of the President of the republic of Fiji."

Hours later Fijilive.com reported that the President of Fiji had declared a state of emergency and that the army had been assigned to protect property and prevent looting. ®
