Russia, Pakistan and Iran Top 'Risk List' for Journalists

Ukraine -- Protest against impunity organized by journalists in Kyiv, 23Nov2011
The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), the US-based press monitoring group, has issued a "CPJ Risk List" of the 10 countries where press freedom suffered the most in 2012 through "fatalities, impunity, imprisonment, censorship, restrictive laws, and exiled journalists."

The list includes Iran, Pakistan and Russia, all countries within RFE/RL's broadcast region.

CPJ's findings track with RFE/RL's annual incident report documenting attacks against its journalists in 2012.
