China continued to be world’s worst jailer of journalists, a
dishonor it has held for 10 consecutive years. Cuba, Burma, Eritrea,
and Uzbekistan round out the top five jailers from among the 29 nations
that imprison journalists. Each of the top five nations has
persistently placed among the world’s worst in detaining journalists.
At least 56 online journalists are jailed worldwide, according to
CPJ’s census, a tally that surpasses the number of print journalists
for the first time. — Committee to Protect Journalists
