Amnesty International has criticised Tanzania's President John Magufuli after his government told an American aid organisation to stop running family planning adverts in local media. 

The Tanzanian leader has been critical of contraceptives, saying the country needed more people.

Amnesty's director for the region, Seif Magango, called the decision "deplorable".

“The Tanzanian authorities must immediately stop obstructing access to sexual and reproductive health services and end the intimidation of anyone providing information about such services – be they health workers, journalists or activists," he added.
