New York, November 29, 2012 - The Committee to Protect Journalists is alarmed by the Internet and cell phone shutdown in Syria today which disconnects Syrians from the world as they endure conflict.
New York, August 30, 2012--Syrian authorities must immediately release U.S. freelance journalist Austin Tice believed to be in government custody, the Committee to Protect Journalists said today.
On the first anniversary of Syria's uprising, CPJ issued a report showing the Syrian government had directly targeted two local journalists. This week, CPJ found Syrian security forces have killed two British freelance reporters. The Los Angeles Times uses CPJ's research in its coverage of the story.
