NEW YORK — China, Cuba, Eritrea and Myanmar accounted for more than three-quarters of the journalists imprisoned around the world in 2004, an organization for defending press freedom reported Thursday.
Of the 122 journalists in 20 nations who were in prison as of Dec 31 last year, 93 were in the four countries, the New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists said. China topped the list in 2004 for the sixth consecutive year with 42, followed by Cuba with 23, Eritrea with 17 and Myanmar with 11, the committee said. (Kyodo News)
