Fijian Military Commander Frank Bainimarama has extended the deadline for his demands to be met until after a rugby match. Bainimarama has threatened to stage a coup if the government does not 'clean up'.
Originally he gave the government until midday Friday but has now said that he won't move on the government until after the annual military versus police rugby game scheduled to be held in Suva at 4:00 PM.
Many countries have expressed concern and warned their citizens against travelling to Fiji. If successful the coup would be Fiji's fourth in 20 years. Australia has sent 3 naval vessels to the area to evacuate it's citizens if the coup goes ahead.
