CPJ reported on an Egyptian journalist fined for defamation this past week and The Guardian Greenslade blog used CPJ's research to source the site's entry on this defamation case. 

Ethiopia is the second leading jailer of journalists, according to CPJ research.  This month, CPJ and Africa Media Initiative met with Ethiopia's senior communications official to discuss the country's press freedom record and review laws affecting freedom of speech.  Voice of America reported on this visit and spoke to CPJ's East Africa Consultant, Tom Rhodes.
