Press freedom in the news 10/02/08

Fox News reports today that the U.S. government has given visas to two Cuban journalists who had been barred from re-entering the country despite holding accreditation for the United Nations. The Web site Caribbean Net News carried our alert, which we released earlier this week.

Also in the news, The Associated Press has updated its ongoing “Iraq: Key Figures since the war began” feature and uses CPJ’s numbers on journalists killed.
