Regulation & Policy

Somalia: Attacks against and intimidation of journalists in Somalia are reaching a troubling level, says a new report by the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ), a Solidarity Center partner. The report, "Lives and Rights of Journalists under Threat," chronicles physical threats to journalists, extrajudicial killings, legal pressure, and attacks on media workers' rights… Somalia's breakaway territory Somaliland has shut down a private television station it accuses of airing anti-government propaganda, and arrested 21 journalists who protested the move.
