Attacks on the Press in 2006: A Worldwide Survey by the Committee to Protect Journalists
In Moscow, investigative reporter Anna Politkovskaya is shot execution-style in her apartment building. In Mogadishu, an assassin emerges from a crowd to kill award-winning photojournalist Martin Adler. And in Samarra, insurgents target television correspondent Atwar Bahjat as she reports from the scene of a bombing. Attacks on the Press in 2006 recounts the stories of these and other journalists killed in retaliation for their work. It documents hundreds of other threats and assaults against the news media, and explores press freedom trends in every corner of the world. In Pakistan and Afghanistan, front lines in the war on terrorism, reporting is suffering as security deteriorates. Leftist governments in several Latin American countries are imposing new curbs on the press. In China, the biggest government crackdown since Tiananmen Square is stifling coverage of civil unrest. Dozens of journalists in Ethiopia and Eritrea are imprisoned on spurious charges. And in Iraq, the death toll among journalists is the highest in a generation.Compiled each year by the Committee to Protect Journalists, an independent nonprofit organization, Attacks on the Press is the most authoritative reference guide to press freedom worldwide, providing factual and unbiased analyses of media conditions in more than 100 nations.
