RSF report on 2006

December 31st, 2006 | by aobaoill |

A year-end report from Reporters san Frontières – which notes that 2006 was the deadliest year since 1994 – includes mention of the censoring of 300 community radio stations in Thailand in the aftermath of the coup earlier this year:

Thailand recorded the most cases of censorship. After a military coup in September, more than 300 community radio stations were shut down along with several Internet websites. Things returned to normal after a few weeks.

81 journalists were killed world-wide, with the most deadly countries being Iraq, Mexico, The Philippines and Russia.
