Eritrea's government said on Tuesday that all was calm in the capital Asmara a day after armed mutineers seized the information ministry, with opposition sites saying the stand-off was settled.

“All is calm today, as it was indeed on Monday,” said Yemane Gebremeskel, the director of Eritrean President Issaias Afeworki's office, in a message to AFP. Opposition websites said the rebelling soldiers had agreed to surrender. - Sapa-AFP
