New York, May 13, 2015--The Committee to Protect Journalists will release
Drawing the line: Cartoonists under threat, its first report on the global threat to cartoonists, on May 19, 2015.

The attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in January 2015 shed light on the grave dangers confronting those who draw satirical and political cartoons. But threats against cartoonists are a global phenomenon and are as diverse as the content of the cartoons themselves. CPJ's report explores the crackdowns on cartoonists by examining cases in Malaysia, India, South Africa, Bangladesh, Venezuela, the United States, Ecuador, Sri Lanka, Syria, and Iran.
