Reporters without Borders report on journalists detained, held hostage and missing
As despotic regimes become more aggressive, their desire to manipulate and control information rises as well. Those who have the courage to report violations of basic rights often pay a heavy price. As we approach the end of this years, almost 400 journalists are detained because of their work in providing news and information. This report from Reporters without Borders details these incarcerations and the challenges faced by both professional and non- professional reporters.
