A Saudi-led coalition airstrike on a Yemeni radio station kills at least three staff members. Previous airstrikes have killed at least six journalists since the start of the Saudi-led military campaign backing Yemen's internationally recognized government in 2015. Journalists are at risk of kidnap, attack, and killings, including by rebel Houthi forces. A journalist detained by Houthis for a year dies shortly after his release. Journalists in the war-torn country say no safe areas remain as rival militias and government or coalition forces act to silence critical media. (Photo: AFP/Mohammed Huwais)
The CPJ expresses concern about the Digital Security Act that was passed on September 18 by the Parliament of Bangladesh, and urges President Abdul Hamid to return it to Parliament for review. CPJ is concerned that the legislation, if allowed to become law, would violate constitutional guarantees of freedom of the press, and would create extensive legal dangers for journalists in the normal course of carrying out their professional activities.
