Fighting Words

"When I cried, he slapped me hard and put his hand over my mouth." That is how a 12-year-old girl in the Central African Republic described an episode in which a man found her hiding in the bathroom of her home in the wee hours of August 2, 2015, dragged her outside, and raped her, hidden from view behind a truck.

La Lutte avec les mots

« Quand j'ai pleuré, il m'a giflée violemment et a mis sa main sur ma bouche. » Ce sont les mots qu'une fillette centrafricaine de douze ans a utilisés pour décrire un incident au cours duquel un homme l'a trouvée aux petites heures du 2 août 2015, cachée dans la salle de bain de sa maison, et l'a traînée dehors puis violée, hors de vue derrière un camion.

On the first Saturday of November 2014, when media owner and broadcaster David Tam Baryoh switched on the mic for his weekly "Monologue" show on independent Citizen FM in Freetown, Sierra Leone, he had no idea that criticizing the government's handling of Ebola would mean 11 days in jail.

Dans les pays touchés par le virus Ebola, autorités et journalistes doivent collaborer

Peter Nkanga, représentant du CPJ pour l'Afrique de l'ouest

La crise de l'Ebola qui touche actuellement l'Afrique de l'ouest se poursuit et les journalistes chargés de documenter le virus sur le terrain sont pris entre les autorités désireuses de contrôler la façon dont la flambée épidémique est relatée, et le risque d'être eux-mêmes victime de cette maladie.

In attempts to contain Ebola, Liberia censors its press

With the Ebola epidemic predicted to get worse, the Liberian government has taken action to silence news outlets critical of its handling of the health crisis which, according to Liberia's Information Ministry, has claimed more than 1,000 lives in the country since March. Publishers have been harassed and forced to cease printing, and journalists were initially not exempt from a curfew, making it difficult for them to work, according to the Press Union of Liberia (PUL).

Most governments, even repressive ones, at least give lip service to supporting freedom of the press--especially on World Press Freedom Day, May 3. But in Liberia this month, Othello Daniel Warrick, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf's chief security aide, shocked local journalists by threatening them and calling them "terrorists" at a public event to mark the occasion, according to news reports and local media groups.
