Scoop Link: Fiji Times has reported that Fijian Army soldiers in full combat gear have taken over the headquarters of the Fiji Police Tactical Response Division, removing guns and ammunition, and locking out members on duty. And FijiLive.com reports: several twin-cab vans carrying armed soldiers arrived at the premises after a briefing at the Queen Elizabeth Barracks in Nabua and the Force Training Group in Makoi. See...
