Publication of the weekly Al-Wihda was delayed on April 10 by security authorities until an article by journalist Muwaffaq Mahadin was removed. Mahadin told CPJ that the article was critical of how Prime Minister Adnan Badran’s government was formed, claiming that its selection was undemocratic and that it was no different than previous governments. Al-Wihda was allowed to publish only after Mahadin’s article was excised.
