The military-backed emergency government eased press censorship Tuesday, and newspapers strongly criticized President Alberto Fujimori's coup against the Congress and judiciary. Troops and tanks continued to surround the Congress and the Palace of Justice, both shut down by the Sunday night crackdown. But security forces and censors were withdrawn from most news media offices. Foreign Minister Augusto Blacker said the news media outlets were occupied to safeguard them.
