BBC reports that in a statement, the EU Council of Ministers called on the government to restrain its security agencies, investigate allegations of abuses and bring to account all those responsible for violations. The EU ministers said the internet shutdown disrupted the work of journalists, observers, and polling agents expected to monitor the election.
