Press freedom in the news 11/20/08

There is more coverage of yesterday’s revelation that the Anna Politkovskaya murder trial will again be held behind closed doors. VOA News, The Sydney Morning Herald, and GulfNews are all running reports that say the proceedings were closed to reporters after jurors came forward to express fear for their safety. However, in an interesting twist, Agence France-Presse is reporting that one of the jurors has come forward claiming that collectively they do, in fact, wish the controversial trial to be opened to the press.
