Reporters Without Borders 6th Annual Press Freedom Report

The international press freedom group Reporters Without Borders just released its 6th annual report on press freedom worldwide:

"Outside Europe - in which the top 14 countries are located - no region of the world has been spared censorship or violence towards journalists".

"Of the 20 countries at the bottom of the index, seven are Asian (Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Laos, Vietnam, China, Burma, and North Korea), five are African (Ethiopia, Equatorial Guinea, Libya, Somalia and Eritrea), four are in the Middle East (Syria, Iraq, Palestinian Territories and Iran), three are former Soviet republics (Belarus, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan) and one is in the Americas (Cuba)".
