A website of a popular local radio station became a victim of a hoax story which claimed that Eritrea has passed a forced polygamy law.
According to the news story, Eritrea had ordered that a man has to marry two wives or face prison.
The story was first published on Crazy Monday, a satirical website from Kenya.
It was claimed that the decision had been taken due to the shortage of women in comparison to men.
Many websites published this story around the world, and a few thought it was authentic. These included Sri Lanka's Neth FM.
