Overview

Throughout Mexico, from the borderlands to the Sierra Madre, criminal gangs are using murder, abduction, and threats to censor the news. In Afghanistan and Pakistan, journalists are dying in greater numbers as they cover conflicts with vast international implications. And across the African continent, from Cameroon to South Africa, governments are employing new laws and repressive police tactics to silence coverage of official corruption.

Attacks on the Press analyzes conditions for the news media in more than 100 countries across the world, charting advancements and documenting new dangers. As Cuba frees jailed reporters and editors, Iran still holds dozens in its prisons. While press rights are improving in China, censorship is creeping back in Latin American countries.

The world's most comprehensive guide to international press freedom, Attacks on the Press is compiled annually by the Committee to Protect Journalists, an independent, nonprofit organization.
