Journalists in Trouble

RFE-RL has a full report on two of its journalists who were imprisoned for several days in Turkmenistan. The men were forced to sign confessions admitting that they were traitors who had fomented religious hatred, and warned against further collaboration with RFE-RL.

This ordeal is, unfortunately, one that is all to common to reporters around the world. In the same vein, journalists in Jordan went on a one hour strike to protest a new press law. And, of course, let's not forget those who are hostages or who have been killed in Iraq.
