Those who made the list this year, as in the past, earned the dubious distinction by exhibiting particular zeal for the ruthless suppression of journalists. For the second consecutive year, the leader of Algeria's Armed Islamic Group took first place in a roster that includes a number of repeat offenders and a troubling cast of newcomers.
