    The Indian Ocean archipelago country of Comoros said it had seized control of the rebel island of Anjouan today after a seaborne assault backed by African Union troops.

    "Anjouan island is under total control of the army," Major Ahmed Sidi told reporters at a joint press conference with the AU on the neighbouring island of Moheli.

    "So far we have no dead or wounded to lament. The rebel chiefs have all run away, and none has yet been found."

    Earlier, a presidential official said the Comoros army, along with about 400 AU troops, had taken part in a "first wave" of assaults on Anjouan, one of three islands in the coup-prone archipelago, which won independence from France in 1975.
