Eritrea is the world’s most-censored
nation, ahead of countries including North Korea and Syria, the
Committee to Protect Journalists said.
The three countries are joined in the top 10 by Iran and
Equatorial Guinea, the New York-based organization said in a
report on its website today. Reporters in Eritrea, a nation in
the Horn of Africa which won independence from Ethiopia in 1993,
are conscripted into their work and handed instructions on how
to cover events, the group said. The last accredited foreign
correspondent was expelled in 2007, it said.
